Bernardo hopes his move to Brighton & Hove Albion will boost his global profile and catch the eye of Brazil coach Tite.
The Brazilian full-back has joined Brighton from RB Leipzig, where he was successful but remained under Tite's radar.
Having noted the impact of the performances in the Premier League last season of his compatriot Richarlison at Watford, the 23-year-old is also aiming to make a name for himself in England and beyond.
"The staff from the national team and all my friends wake up and put on the Premier League."
"Richarlison from Watford, he is playing for a good club but not in the top six.
“Everyone is now talking about Richarlison, so the Premier League brings you to another level, because everyone is watching it.
"The staff from the national team and all my friends wake up and put on the Premier League. In the Premier League you just have to do your thing, because people are watching you."
There could be a fair number of Brazilians watching Bernardo's Premier League debut as Brighton travel to Richarlison's Watford on 11 August.
