Bernard keen to stay in Brazil as Tottenham and Dortmund come calling

Atletico Mineiro attacking midfielder Bernard says he wants to stay with his current club amidst interest from Europe.

Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund have been credited with an interest in the 20-year old Brazil international but he insists he is happy with Mineiro for the time being.

"There is no chance I will leave before the (Copa) 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."
