Rapper Starting Sports Management Biz

EXCLUSIVE

0724-lil-wayne-cristiano-ronaldo-tmz-getty-01Cristiano Ronaldo is about to become a YOUNG MONEY CASH MONEY BILLIONAIRE ... because sources tell TMZ Sports Lil Wayne is starting his own sports management company and Ronaldo will be client #1. 

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.

Seems Ronaldo is pumped about the situation -- he just posted a photo with the Prime Minister of Japan along with other Japanese politicians ... and they were all throwing up the YMCMB sign.

Congrats!!

Nothing like reaching out to a punk ass pop culture thug when your athletic career enters it's twilight phase... Anyone think Ronaldo would have even taken this goons call five years ago??

It is said that "Politics makes strange bedfellows." These two may not be politicians, but they sure do make strange bedfellows. Not exactly an intuitive matchup, I'd say.
