Brazilian sensation Neymar is a reported target for Jay-Z, as the hip hop superstar looks to expand his Roc Nation entertainment company by signing up some of the most high-profile names in the sporting world.

According to Spanish publication Sport, Roc Nation are making plans to invest heavily in sport, having already recruited New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano to their roster, and Neymar has now been identified as a key acquisition.

Along with Neymar, Jay-Z and Roc Nation are reported to be looking at his compatriots Leandro Damiao, linked with Tottenham, and Paris Saint-Germain youngster Lucas Moura, who joined the French club last summer.

The apparent interest in Neymar from Jay-Z, husband of pop queen Beyonce, reinforces the Neymar position as one of the most highly-coveted footballers in the world both on and off the pitch.

Neymar appears destined to secure a transfer to from Santos to a prominent club in Europe either this summer transfer window or the next, with Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester City all credited with interest in the 21-year-old.
