Started by Brazilian journalist Leo Dia in his newspaper “O Dia”, a rumour is currently doing the rounds that rap mogul Jay-Z is trying to sign Santos superstar Neymar to his new sports agency Roc Nation Sports.
According to Leo Dia, Jay-Z is on the lookout for some of sports biggest names to boost the profile of his fledging company, and Brazilian teenager Neymar is at the top of his most-wanted list.
Aside from signing Neymar, Leo Dia claims Jay-Z is also interested in bringing in Lucas and Leandro Damiao under his management.
Sadly the original article failed to quote any sources to suggest that the rumour is real, yet that hasn’t prevented the likes of Spanish paper Sport reproducing the story to their audience.
