After some impressive performances for Atletico Mineiro and showing glimpses of his talent in the Confederations Cup, Brazil international Bernard now has five clubs interested in his services.

The Samba starlet was reluctant to discuss his future but has stated that there are offers on the table.

He stated: "I have already said that I won't talk about this, but the president has admitted publicly that there are five offers."

Bernard is clearly keeping his cards close to his chest as he gave very little away as to whether he will look to leave or stay in Brazil.

Juan Reol, a press agent who assists Bernard's agent Adriano Spadolo, was quoted by the London Evening Standard as saying: "The Atletico Mineiro board are the only ones who can talk about negotiations, but of course there are offers."

He added: "Dortmund has expressed an interest. Tottenham as well, but since they have signed Paulinho they have gone cold. Porto are also one of the clubs, but we have to understand that Bernard won't negotiate during the Copa Libertadores."

There is the indication that if Atletico Mineiro should be eliminated from the Copa Libertadores, Bernard will be allowed to listen to offers from other clubs but he will remain at the club as long as they stay in the competition. 

Dortmund may now be out of the running since they have signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Tottenham and Porto are likely to be the frontrunners for the 20-year-old's signature, but his most likely destination would be Porto as he may be tempted by Champions League football.
