Roberto Martínez Finally Breaks Silence And Responds To Real Madrid Links

Roberto Martínez recently emerged as a surprise candidate to become the new Real Madrid manager after the club sacked Julen Lopetegui.

The former Wigan Athletic and Everton boss is currently in charge of Belgium and led the national team to a third-place finish in the World Cup over the summer.

The 45-year-old Spaniard has finally broken his silence and responded to rumours linking him with Los Blancos.

"Let us not waste our time about that," he told VTM Nieuws (via Diario AS and Football Espana).

Martínez is contracted with the Belgium FA until 2020, with Football Espana reporting that Belgium would want a 'compensation agreement' before they would be willing to part ways with their manager.

Antonio Conte has been one of the frontrunners for Madrid, though it would seem that there have been certain differences between the former Chelsea boss and the Spanish club.
