Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has delayed making a decision on his future until early next week. Martinez was expected to make a decision today, but according to Sky Sports News a meeting with chairman Dave Whelan did not reach a conclusion.
Speculation is rife about the content of their discussions, with some suggesting that Martinez is delaying in the hope of more job offers coming in. The Spaniard has been linked with jobs in the England and Europe, with Everton, Stoke, Malaga and Napoli all reportedly interested.
Despite the speculation my personal view is that Martinez will be keen to stay with the club but will want Whelan to make significant funds available to reinforce the squad for the forthcoming Championship and European campaigns. Whelan can be a hard negotiator but Martinez will want to be reassured of the financial support before he makes a final commitment.
The final decision is now expected to be made on Monday or Tuesday next week.
