Usain Bolt will train with Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, the club’s CEO said, according to soccer media.

Bolt has long said he desires to play professional soccer, with most of his comments about his favorite Premier League club, Manchester United.

Bolt was quoted in a Saturday article by the Guardian that he would train with Dortmund for two days and “see what happens.”

In response, Dortmund’s CEO reportedly confirmed that Bolt would train with the club but offered no assurances of anything more.

Bolt, who isn’t expected to race on the track again until February, and Dortmund already have a tie-in with apparel sponsor Puma.

In the past, Bolt has been linked to Jamaica’s national team, played with Sergio Aguero and erroneously reported to be suiting up in a special Manchester United match.
