Shakhtar Donetsk starlet Bernard has hinted he may consider leaving the club following the World Cup after reportedly being offered to Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.
The 21-year-old, who was named in Luiz Felipe Scolari's World Cup squad, only joined the Ukrainian champions from boyhood club Atletico Mineiro last summer in a deal worth £22m but is reportedly looking for a way out after recent political unrest that has gripped Donetsk.
But with the World Cup underway in three days, the diminutive attacking midfielder insists his focus is solely on helping Brazil secure a sixth title, although he admits there is uncertainty surrounding his club future.
"I made it clear since I arrived to join the national team that I won't comment about the possibility of a transfer as I am focused on the World Cup," Bernard, who was picked ahead of Paris Saint Germain starlet Lucas Moura in the Brazil squad, told Superesportes.
"It's a unique moment in the career of a player, I want to mature and learn a lot here with more experienced teammates.
"I leave my off the field situation to be handled by those who have the right to do so without me. I don't know (what will happen) after the World Cup, I have people to handle the off the field things."
Bernard was closely linked with Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Porto last summer but Shakhtar's superior spending power ensured they claimed his signature.
Reports in Brazil have suggested a number of domestic clubs including Sao Paulo has expressed an interest in bringing him back to his homeland. However, the Mirror suggest a fee of £19m will be needed to secure his services, making him an unrealistic targets for Brazilian clubs without the backing of third party ownership.
