Cristiano Ronaldo goes by many names: CR7, Ronnie, the “Sultan of the Stepover,” or simply Cristiano. As the reigning Ballon d’Or winner, “best player in the world” works too.

Can we soon add “Young Money Cash Money Billionaire” to the list?

According to TMZ, rapping mogul Lil Wayne is starting his own sports management venture, and none other than Ronaldo is set to become Weezy’s first client. However, since the rumor broke and circulated around the web, Ronaldo has come out to deny that any changes to his management team will be made.

TMZ reported that Lil Wayne’s new company would “handle Ronaldo’s sports management affairs in the United States, everything from branding to marketing and endorsement deals. Even modeling.”

(“Even” modeling? That seems more like a given.)

The partnership would make a lot of sense. The two global superstars are considered good friends, and Lil Wayne’s new company will reportedly work with PolarisSports — affiliated with GestiFute and CAA — through which Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes currently operates.

For his part, Ronaldo also recently Tweeted out a picture of himself with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and a big crowd of politicians all throwing up Wayne’s famous record label’s Young Money/Cash Money sign. Understandably, this had given the TMZ rumor some legs:
