Reported Chelsea target Bernard will stay at Atletico Mineiro as long as he feels 'valued' by the Brazilian club. The 20-year-old, capped once for Brazil, is keen for the club to improve his wages.
"Wherever I am, they always ask me if I'll stay [at Atletico Mineiro]," he told Lancenet.
"I'm pretty calm about that. Atletico Mineiro and the agents don't have to pay attention only to their interests. They have to pay attention to mine too.
"I'll have the last word, but I'll demand that I'm more valued by the club. Many mention (Brazil and Santos forward) Neymar, who is very valued.
"We know the football career is short. I'm not being a mercenary, but I need some stability.
"So I'll want to be valued in order to stay. But I'll leave that to [Atletico Mineiro's president Alexandre] Kalil."
