Roberto Martinez ready for players leaving

James McCarthyRoberto Martinez says Wigan are prepared for every eventuality and he is not worried about big players leaving in the summer.

Key duo Antolin Alcaraz and Franco Di Santo are due to fall out of contract at the end of the season, while James McCarthy and Callum McManaman are on the wanted list of many clubs this summer.

However, Martinez has always said that their futures are on hold while the club battle to beat the drop, and that situation has not changed despite Wigan winning the FA Cup at the weekend.

“The nature of the modern game has changed the whole mentality,” he said. “Manchester United lost Cristiano Ronaldo. If they can lose the best player in the world, what chance does a club like ours have?

“What you need is a recruitment department which allows you to invest money when the time is right. We shouldn’t worry about losing players. We are prepared for that.”

The future of Martinez is also up in the air as Everton are keen for him to replace David Moyes, who is heading for Manchester United, but again any decision is on the back-burner until the end of the season.
