Report: Lil Wayne to join sports management, represent Ronaldo
Rapper Lil Wayne is getting into the sports management game by reportedly getting his friend Cristiano Ronaldo to be his first client.
First it was Jay-Z and now rapper Lil Wayne is interested in getting into the sports management business and his first client is going to be a mega star.
According to TMZ, Lil Wayne is starting his own company and will bring on Portuguese and Real Madrid soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo as his client. It's a big fish to reel in for a first-time sports manager -- probably the biggest in the world -- but Ronaldo and Lil Wayne are friends, making the connection an easy one to make.
More from TMZ on the arrangement:
We're told Weezy's company will be working with PolarisSports -- which is affiliated with the CAA agency and GestiFute -- through which Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes operates.
Our sources tell us Wayne's company will handle Ronaldo's sports management affairs in the United States -- everything from branding to marketing and endorsement deals. Even modeling.
That would explain a bit more why Ronaldo tweeted out this picture of he and a Japanese television station crew making the YMCMB (Young Money Cash Money Billionaires).
Get ready to see more of Ronaldo in the States, and soccer. A connection between Ronaldo and Lil Wayne will only help give the sport a bigger spot on the American radar.
