Romelu Lukaku, Leonard Fournette Join Forces with Jay-Z



“It’s all basic, I’ve been spending 100s since they had small faces,” Jay-Z rapped in “Money Ain’t a Thang,” an ode to being a very lucrative individual. Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is certainly in that class these days, and today marked another nice payday for him, as he signed with Roc Nation Sports, a branch of the entertainment agency owned and founded by Jay-Z.

In addition to the 24-year-old Belgian, the hip-hop and fashion mogul also welcomed Jacksonville Jaguars star tailback Leonard Fournette into the fold.

Fournette, an ex-LSU star, even swapped shirts with Lukaku for a photo. During his time off from United this week, Lukaku was also able to take in a Brooklyn Nets game. Lukaku joins Kevin Durant, Dez Bryant, Jerome Boateng, Miguel Cotto as prominent members of the Roc Nation family.

Roc Nation launched the sports branch in 2013. Lukaku and United beat Chelsea 2-1 this past Sunday, and return to action against another London team, Crystal Palace on Monday night.
