Bernard: May snub a switch to Tottenham

The 20 year-old was speaking ahead of the upcoming Copa Libertadores final on Thursday, which many believed would be his last game in his native Brazil, before sealing a switch to Europe.

However, though Bernard didn't categorically rule out signing a deal at White Hart Lane this summer, he revealed that he is very happy where he is at the moment.

"If it's my last game [for Atletico Mineiro] or not, it will be one of the most important titles in my career," he told ESPN Brazil.

"Libertadores is very important for the club and for the players. I'll do my best to make fans happy as moments like that may not happen again."

Bernard would be the second Brazilian snapped up by Andre Villas-Boas this summer following the arrival of Paulinho.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
