The Brazil international says that he will not leave his current club ahead of their Copa Libertadores campaign

Bernard is adamant that he has no intention to leave Atletico Mineiro as their Copa Libertadores campaign gathers pace.

The 20-year-old as been targeted for a summer move by Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund, with Brazil international team-mate Dante urging a switch to the Bundesliga, but the player himself says he is in no rush to play in Europe.

But the attacking midfielder wants to help his current side in their last-four tie against Newell's Old Boys of South America's top club competition before thinking of a move.

The Brazilian told Globo Esporte: "There is no chance I will leave before the Libertadores.

"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."

Atletico Mineiro president Alexandre Kalili has remained tight-lipped over the midfielder's future, telling Superesportes: "I won't talk about this. I will only talk when he is sold."
