Did Neymar's goal celebration reveal his transfer intentions?

New, comments

The last month of Barcelona's season has been overshadowed by rumors surrounding the future of Neymar. Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly serious about bringing the Brazilian superstar on board this summer and some believe it's time for him to spread his wings with another club.

At the conclusion of extra time in Barcelona's Copa del Rey triumph over Sevilla, Neymar scored the goal to put the match out of reach. While it's never safe to take a goal celebration seriously, he looked pretty demonstrative in his gesture. Have a look for yourself:

I'm definitely not a body language expert by any means. But that sure looked like Neymar saying he's staying in Barcelona despite all the rumors. Sure, there's always a chance he could have a change of heart once the adrenaline of a cup-winning goal wears off and his agent gets in his ear, but chances certainly look good of Neymar returning to the Camp Nou next season with this declaration.
