Everton will have made it clear to Bernard that his prospects at the club will be limited, former England defender Danny Mills believes.
“[Head coach Carlo] Ancelotti is clever and very, very good at what he does alongside the sporting director Marcel Brands. They’ll have told Bernard that his starting opportunities are going to be very limited,” he told Football Insider.
“They’ll have said: ‘If you want to stay and fight for your place, that’s entirely up to you. But if you want to go elsewhere and the fee is right then we’re not going to stand in your way.’”
