Jay-Z will be in London this weekend supporting Real Madrid in the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

Jay-Z, 54, is the founder of Roc Nation, a talent agency that represents a rapidly growing number of stars in various sports – including Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr.

The Brazilian star is a front-runner to win the Ballon d’Or, with his Real side winning LaLiga by 10 points in the 2023-24 season.

But continental club glory is widely seen as a prerequisite to winning the award, meaning victory is essential to the 23-year-old’s hopes of individual honors further down the line.

He will also have the chance to strengthen his claim later this summer with Brazil competing in the Copa America, which is being held in the United States.

Vinicius has scored 23 goals in 38 games in all competitions for Real going into Saturday’s game against the German side.

The Brazilian, who has already won the Champions League once, is the only Roc Nation player representing the organization on Sunday, alongside other stars such as Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli.

He joined the agency last July, sharing a photo with Jay-Z and calling him a «legend» after the move was completed.
