The Times:

The Brazilian club admitted last night that the winger will leave for up to £21.5 million after he tries to help them to overturn a 2-0 deficit against Olimpia in the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final.

Or as the Mirror reports:

Bernard, the 20 year old defender subject to interest from Arsenal this summer, seems keen to focus on winning silverware with his current club before discussing his potential move to the Emerates.

“I do not want to be rude or ignorant to anyone. I want to talk about the game. What will happen after Wednesday, I do not know,” he said.

How tall is he?

Daily Mail :

Arsenal are closing on a deal for Atletico Mineiro midfielder Bernard. … just under 5ft 6ins tall, is left-footed but can play across the midfield.
