‘I hope he dies’ – Martinez

Martinez and his teammates are confident they can reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League and will play Real Madrid in a final against the reigning champions on Friday.

Martinez, who has won two trophies as manager of Manchester United, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, who have been linked to Chelsea’s Roman Abramovich for years.

However, the Italian club, who are in their final season of their five-year deal with Martinez, have not made any concrete moves in recent months.

According to Mediaset Premium, they have offered him a new five-and-a-half-year contract worth €30m ($35.6m) per season.
