Atletico Mineiro midfielder Bernard has confessed that he is in no rush to leave the club this summer and looks set to disappoint a whole host of clubs looking to snatch his signature, according to Sky Sports.

The highly rated 20-year-old has been on the radars of both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, as well as attracting interest from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund but he has moved to distance himself away from a move in the face of their upcoming Copa Libertadores campaign.

However, he has conceded that his long term future does lie away from the Brazilian side.

“There is no chance I will leave before the Libertadores,” he told Globo Esporte.

“I have made that clear to Atletico. If they want to sell me, do so after the Libertadores. I want to make history at this club.

“There is nothing right now, just speculation.

“The club’s president has said I am unlikely to stay, that it will be hard to keep me, so I am waiting on a decision.

“If he decides something, we will sit down and talk and decide what is best for everyone.”

Bernard first broke into the Mineiro side in 2010 and has gone on to make just under 100 appearances, scoring 11 goals.
