Bernard's mother indicates her son could be set to join Dortmund
Bernard's mother Dona Nélia indicated before the state league final between Atlético Mineiro and Cruzeiro that the winger might be close to joining a German team.
Atlético Mineiro won the game 3-0 and are now close to winning the Minas Gerais State League title.
The Galo are also in the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores, which is Atlético Mineiro's main competition this semester.
An eventual transfer of Bernard is expected to happen only after the competition is over in August, unless Atlético Mineiro are eliminated in an early round.
His mother Dona Nélia suggested that the move might be close to happening, she told reporters: "We will wait for a definition, but if he is to live in Germany, then my husband will go with him first, and I will join them later.
"He is doing his job, which is playing football, every points to a move, but I don't know when, we are hoping for the best for him."
Bernard has been labeled as the 'new Götze' in German press and talks are believed to have already started although both Atlético Mineiro and Bernard's agents deny the speculation.
