Well, you could see this coming a mile away…

Brazilian superstar Neymar, who with his array of showy jewelry and stylish haircuts is clearly much cooler than Lionel Messi, is reportedly rap mogul Jay-Z’s number one target to join Roc Nation’s brand-new sports agency. This according to Yahoo! Sports which translated this article by Spanish newspaper Sport:

"Roc Nation" is creating a segment focused on sports and the idea of its creators is to transform players into real stars with global impact and visibility, which is why Santos player Neymar ​​is one of the priority sports to be "signed to" by the entertainment company.

Neymar would join Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees and Skylar Diggins of the WNBA in rap mogul Jay-Z’s rapidly-growing agency he started earlier this year.

In addition, the report states that Jay-Z also has his eye on fellow Brazilian soccer studs Lucas Moura and Leandro Damião, as well as Jon Jones, the current UFC light heavyweight champion.

Coincidentally, a potential stumbling block to the deal is the last great Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldo, whose own sports marketing firm 9ine signed Neymar to an image rights deal in 2011.
