Olympic champion and world record holder Usain Bolt is one of Manchester United's most famous supporters.

Bolt has spoken out several times in the past, in jest, about how he would love to turn out at Old Trafford in United's colors.

Now he has recorded a message for one of United's major summer transfers. Bolt wants Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score goals, and lots of them.

"Hey Zlatan, it's Usain Bolt, I just wanted to say welcome to the greatest team you've ever been in, Manchester United," Bolt said in a video posted by CNN to Twitter.

"I'm looking forward to goals—I'll be watching you."

Bolt set a world record 100 meters time of 9.58 seconds in Berlin in 2009 that has yet to be bettered. He will run in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4 x 100 meters relay at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, despite a recent scare over a hamstring injury suffered earlier in July.

Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, has joined up with the United squad following an extended break after the conclusion of UEFA Euro 2016. The Swede could appear in his first competitive game for United in the FA Community Shield at Wembley against Leicester City on August 7.
