Atlético Mineiro Bernard denies deal with Shakhtar
Atlético Mineiro's Bernard has insisted that no deal has been struck as of yet with Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Brazilian visited the club's facilities on Monday but says there is no guarantee of a deal happening as negotiations continue between the two parties.
Atlético accepted Shakhtar's offer of €25 million and Bernard is reportedly considering a move to the Ukraine.
He told TV Alterosa: "It's just a visit, there won't be any medical. Nothing is certain and I won't sign any documents. I made it clear to them that I would only visit so that I could see their facilities."
Bernard has previously been linked with a move to England, with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal said to be keen, but Shakhtar are the only side to have met his asking price.
Speaking to Radio Itatiaia, Atlético president Alexandre Kalil said: "Tottenham made an offer of €18m for Bernard, but they withdrew.
"Arsenal told us that they would bid, but never did. So what we have now is a €25m bid from Shakhtar."
