Soccer player Christiano Ronaldo to rep YMCMB?
According to a new report by TMZ, known sports fanatic Lil Wayne is well on the way to starting his own sports agency, already securing a potential first client in Portugal’s Christiano Ronaldo.
Wayne has partnered with Polaris Sports, an affiliate of CAA and GestiFute, the company where Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is currently employed. According to the report, Wayne’s company will handle Ronaldo’s domestic sports management affairs including marketing, endorsement deals, and modeling.
But it seems all these are false? Ronaldo has come out to rebuke all claims and clear out rumours!
Just as TMZ’s claims were starting to look legitimate (Wayne posted the article on his official Facebook page earlier this week), Christiano Ronaldo took to Twitter to deny truth behind the rumors.
There have been news about changes on my management team – it’s all false, and I can assure the team is – and will be – the same.

Whether or not Wayne is planning to operate his own agency, however, remains unclear.
