According to a report from Catalan paper Sport, rapperJay-Z is interested in signing 21-year-old Santos star Neymar to his new sports agency, Roc Nation. Jay-Z entered the world of sports management earlier this year; he recently sold off his shares in the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets in order to devote time and resources to Roc Nation. Neymar, who was recently rated by SportsPro magazine as the most marketable athlete in the world, is understood to be one of the agency’s top targets.
Roc Nation has already signed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and New York Giants wide received Victor Cruz. According to the report, the sports agency is also interested in signing another pair of Brazil internationals: Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Lucas Moura and Internacional striker Leandro Damiao.
