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."
