Usain Bolt is set to pull on a Manchester United shirt in Rio Ferdinand's testimonial next month.

Ferdinand was rewarded for over a decade of service at Old Trafford with a match against Sevilla next month, and he urged David Moyes to let the world’s fastest man play.

Bolt is a big fan of United and good friends with recently retired boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

A source told The Sun: "Usain has finally got his wish and he’ll be lining up alongside Rio.

"It should be quite a game. It will be fascinating to see if Usain’s speed will be matched by his passing and ball control."
