Jay-Z has added a world beater to his ever growing list of sports talent. Roc Nation has signed hulking striker Romelu Lukaku of Manchester United as a soccer client. Lukaku is the 2nd “footballer” signed to the agency after Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng, and their first capture in the English Premier League.
Lukaku’s goal celebration in Tuesday victory over Bournemouth sent the internet abuzz. After netting his 16th of the season, he turned away from goal and “threw up a diamond” like days of old, as if he were one of the original “Roc Boys.” Well now it appears that his gesture was not done in vain, for the striker has since revealed his signing with Jay-Z’s sports agency in an Instagram post this morning.
The Belgian international completed his £75 million switch last summer from rival side Everton. Manager Jose Mourinho was able to fight off competition from the world’s richest clubs to secure his services. Lukaku who has grown in stature in recent years, hopes his decent run of form will translate on world stage, as his National side Belgium looks to make a splash at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
