Nigeria’s Victor Moses looks certain to be at the DW Stadium when ‘The Latics’ entertain the newly-crowned European champions on the opening weekend of the campaign – the only question is on which side.
For his part, Martinez said he remains unconcerned at the silly-season speculation surrounding Moses, who is still on holidays enjoying the sunshine of Miami.
“We’re not going to be drawn into the media speculation,” he told the Evening Post.
“All I will say is that Victor had a tremendous season last year – particularly after Christmas – and he is still only 21.
“I’m really looking forward to Victor having a very good break and coming back refreshed and ready to go.
“His experience with Nigeria will bring him on even more, and will hopefully take him on to a different level next season.
“As I always say, the speculation is only a good thing – because when you perform well you are going to get attraction from elsewhere.”
Wigan owner Dave Whelan has also warned Chelsea he will not cut his asking price of £10 million for the Nigeria winger.
Chelsea FC are expected to bid about £7m with add-ons in Josh McEachran over the weekend.
But Whelan said: “We have had one offer from Chelsea and that is the end of it.”
