"The president (Alexandre Kalil) has already made very clear. If an offer of 25 million euros arrives, he is going to sell and we will buy another player," Atletico director Eduardo Maluf said.

"If that offer does not come, Bernard will stay at Atletico. He is young and can leave at the end of the year," he added.

Bernard capped a fine 12 months by helping the Brazilian outfit win their first Copa Libertadores title over Paraguay's Olimpia. He was also a member of Luiz Felipe Scolari's Brazil side that won the Confederations Cup in June.

Earlier this week Bernard confirmed he had received offers from Shakhtar and Porto but said the club would decide his future.
