Atletico Mineiro winger Bernard, a target for Tottenham Hotspur, has indicated that he could play his last game for his current club in the Copa Libertadores final this week.

Bernard, 20, has said that if Mineiro can win the final against Olimpia, it would bring him one of the most important honours of his career.

The player has also been linked with Borussia Dortmund and Shakhtar Donetsk, and told ESPN Brazil: "If it's my last game [for Atletico Mineiro] or not, it will be one of the most important titles in my career.

"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."

If Bernard does move to White Hart Lane, he would join compatriot Paulinho as a summer addition by Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas.
