Cristiano Ronaldo Denies Lil Wayne Sports Management Deal, Young Money Rep Responds

UPDATE #2: Ronaldo has denied management changes, but a YMCMB rep says the deal is still on.

Lil Wayne is reportedly set to handle Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo's sports management affairs in the United States, according to TMZ.

Ronaldo would become Wayne's first client as he enters the sports management field.

Weezy's company is reportedly slated to work with PolarisSports, a company that is affiliated with CAA and GestiFute, an organization that Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes operates.

Wayne's responsibilities are set to include branding, marketing, modeling and endorsement deals.

Yesterday (July 24), Ronaldo posted a photograph on Instagram of himself with the Japanese Prime Minister and other Japanese politicians displaying the YMCMB sign.

Of course, Lil Wayne won't be the first rapper-turned-sports agent. In recent years, Jay Z has becomea licensed agent for athletes in various sports. Jay represents several artists, including Kevin Durant, Geno Smith, CC Sabathia and Skylar Diggins, among others.
