Central Coast Mariners' Usain Bolt applauds fans after an A-League match.

Agent Tony Rallis, who is representing Bolt while he is in Australia, had told ESPN earlier on Monday that "there is a club in Europe that has offered Bolt a two-year deal. You sell him, so be it, that's the tough world of professional football".

Bolt scored his first two professional goals in a pre-season friendly against Macarthur South West United, with many tipping the Jamaican sprinter to land a full-time contract with the club.

"A champion is always welcome and at Valletta FC we believe nothing is impossible", the club's managing director and CEO Ghasston Slimen said.

"So guys I've retired from track and field looking to become a footballer but look at this".

Do you think Bolt has what it takes to make it as a professional footballer? "This is something that they will talk about in 50 or 100 years' time". "Okay then", Bolt further said in the video.

According to the ABC, the investors, who overtook the club this September, aspire to compete for the UEFA Champions League by next season. "He's been training hard with us and he showed weaknesses, but he also showed his strengths and got two goals, so all credit to him", he said.

"How am I going to get a drug test today?"

The report has triggered speculation that he may walk out from his trial at Australian team Central Coast Mariners. As per the notice, it appears that the Football Federation Australia has asked the athlete to submit his urine and blood samples.

"It's very much, the ball in the Mariners' court", Gallop told Macquarie Sports Radio.

Gallop said there was no chance of using the marquee fund to meet Bolt's contract demands, as its objective was to attract proven world-class players.

The 32-year-old's Mariners team-mate Ross McCormack, meanwhile, has hailed the 100m and 200m world record-holder's chances of succeeding in his switch to football.
