Atletico Mineiro coach Cuca has admitted that talented youngster Bernard will likely be on the move this summer.

The young winger is being tracked by a host of leading clubs, and was part of Brazil's Confederations Cup-winning squad.

Tottenham are said to have been following the 20-year-old, along with Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto and Borussia Dortmund.

Cuca concedes that whoever he is playing for come the end of the summer, it is unlikely to be Mineiro.

"Atletico Mineiro won't be able to keep Bernard, but this is natural," he said.

"We have to take advantage of having him in Libertadores and if he leaves, as it seems it will happen, it's up to us to develop another player like him."

Spurs appear to have fallen back in the race for his services after manager Andre Villas-Boas revealed in an interview that a move wasn't on the cards.

Porto may well be the favourites for his services after he recently revealed his desire to follow in the footsteps of countryman Hulk, while Shakhtar have plenty of cash to splash following the departures of Fernandinho and Willian to Manchester City and Anzhi Makhachkala respectively.
