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.

    Why would a healthy successful football player want to hire a skinny jean, fake blood, tattoed, gremlin looking wack ass rapper with no business sense that calls a grown man he kisses his daddy?. Cristiano is not a fool.

    • darren

      I think you severely underestimate YMCMB's marketing team, of course they are all extremely talented artist but that's not the only reason they own the rap game

    "The YMCMB rep adds that Wayne is set to handle "branding, marketing and other sports management issues in the United States," according to the publication. " No one in their right mind who hire a drug addicted rapper to do all that for them over a proper sports agent and manager.

    Ronaldo needs to shut his mouth and accept the fact that he signed a contract. If not, he's bought himself a $100 million dollar lawsuit just like what game and busta rhymes are about to get.

  • int'l J

    By the way most popular had different categories.... I have the example of most profitable. The biggest factor of that is that schools generate this money and don't pay players, all other professional teams around the world can't say this. With that said soccer is the most watched sport in the world. Here's the list... 1. Soccer 2. Cricket 3. Basketball 4 hockey & field hockey ( big surprise ) 5 tennis On this list football comes in at number ten behind every other sport in the world, even behind baseball. Football is basically an American sport, but that's mainly because other countries just aren't that good at it, restart the mexican, Japanese, and Europe leagues.

      bullshit ain't nobody like cricket except asians, south africans, australians and old white englishmen

  • int'l J

    Here's why, because soccer is a sport that the rich or poor can enjoy. It sounds Fucked up but it's true. All you need is a ball and space, no matter how big or small the space is. Football is rough and you can get hurt more, basketball you need a ball with the correct bounce and a goal. Baseball you need a ball, glove, bases, and bat. Hockey you need the most even if it's just Street hockey you need skates, net, ball, and sticks. You don't need nothing for soccer but a ball. I've seen plenty of ppl play with just that. That and the fact that soccer has had a a hundred year head start is why is bigger. However people think that soccer is the biggest sport in the world but it's not, the biggest and most profitable sport in the world is college football. I check a few years ago there are5 times as many teams as any other sport with some states with 20 college teams and even the smallest teams averaging millions. Poof, mind blownnnnnn!

  • int'l J

    Wrong! J Prince was the first, he managed Roy Jones and Floyd Mayweather. Then Master P had Ricky Williams. Then Jay.

  • AndreHazes

    Why would you not put Schurrle? He is also good or Willian, You have plenty of players. thats a beast team, do not forget real madrid, barca, united & city also have beast team: suarez, rakitic, T Kroos, Rodriguez, Bale Cr7, Herrera, Shaw, Aguero, Yaya Toure you are not the only one. Pogba wont come btw

  • Mario Gotze

    diego costa Hazard Fabregas Marco Reus Paul Pogba Nemanja Matic Filip Luis Terry Cahill Azpilicueta Cech/Courtois This would be a killer team destroying all you bastard

People go to school for that shit!! Dumb ass rap niggas lol

    CR7 my goat but be took an L for this How the hell you hire Lil Wayne to handle business for you lmao

  • White_Boi

    I've never been able to understand how FOOTBALL has never really taken off in the US. It's by far the #1 sport in the WORLD, yet in the US Baseball, Basketball, American Football and probably even Nascar are all more popular! Shit, probably add golf to the list, and Ice Hockey! Cristiano Ronaldo is a far bigger star around the world than any of the US' major sports stars. Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods et al are tiny by comparison to Cristiano Ronaldo.

      No one outside of America cares about any of these NBA, NFL, Stick hitting the ball dudes. They minor league globally. Ronaldo got like 30 mill followers on twitter. In terms of sports people. He's the biggest on the planet. Michael Jordan the biggest in space though.

      Lebron James in a trillion times more popular than this bi sexual soccer moron.
