"If I stay or not, I have made it clear that I wanted to leave here with a big title, so I have fulfilled my goal, which I promised to fulfill.
"It is up to God to decide if I stay or not, it's up to God and also the presidency, to Alexandre Kalil, to the board."
Bernard also confirmed the news that several key European clubs were showing big interest in him, including Porto and some unamed Enlighs sides.
He said: "I'll keep working until the board decides something about the transfer," he told Sportv. "There are offers from English football, Shakhtar and Porto."
