Lil Wayne is now a sports agent. Reportedly, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo will be the first signing to Weezy’s fledgling sports management firm.
Our sources tell us … Weezy has been wanting to get into the sports management game for a while and has had his sights set on the Team Portugal stud … not just because he’s a huge sports star, but because they’re friends.
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.
Late last year, news broke that YMCMB was looking to get into the sports management business.
Ronaldo is apparently all in as he gave YMCMB a shout out all the way from Japan, see below.
Will Weezy be a success getting his Jerry Maguire on? Let us know what you think in the comments.
