Usain Bolt is ‘unlikely’ to sign a contract with Central Coast Mariners ‘without financial contribution of an external third party,’ informs Talksport.
“The club can confirm that a contract proposal has been offered by the Central Coast Mariners and negotiations remain ongoing with Usain Bolt and his management regarding his football future.”
“It is important to note that contract values speculated in the media are incorrect.,” the club said.
The report suggests the deal is worth $150,000 for the season — nowhere near the $3 million that Bolt’s management is said to have initially discussed.
The club release added: “Without the financial contribution of an external third party, it is unlikely that Usain Bolt and the Central Coast Mariners will agree to terms.”
