Liverpool's hunt for a new manager could be over after it emerged that Roberto Martinez was set to announce his future plans on Tuesday.

Press Association Sport understands Wigan will hold a press conference this week in which Martinez is expected to announce whether or not he will stay. The 38-year-old met Liverpool's owners in Miami on Thursday to discuss the managerial vacancy and was apparently not put off by the huge challenge that would face any new manager.

However, it is understood Martinez has not made up his mind completely whether to accept that challenge and has given himself until Tuesday to do so. Wigan chairman Dave Whelan claimed on Friday the Spaniard had received an offer from Liverpool's principal owner John Henry after their meeting.
