Romelu Lukaku becomes the first Premier League player to sign with the US sports management agency, Roc Nation Sports, founded by none other than Jay Z.
The Manchester United striker met with Roc Nation Sport’s senior management executive, Shawn ‘Pecas’ Costnerand, and signed the deal during a recent trip to New York to watch a basketball game.
This explains the infamous Jay Z hand symbol Lukaku threw up after his goal against Bournemouth last night, winning 2-0.
Lukaku’s agent remains Mino Raiola but it is likely that Roc Nation will take care of his talent management and commercial opportunities.
That Roc-a-Fella chain must be landing soon!
