Martinez has been courted by Aston Villa and Liverpool over the past two summers and is presently favourite for the impending vacancy at Everton.
His stock can hardly be much higher either following Saturday's FA Cup final triumph over Manchester City, the first major trophy in Wigan's history, which also comes with direct entry into next season's Europa League.
Yet Martinez is not like most managers.
By his own admission his players play in a manner no other relegation-threatened side would try.
And, whilst the former Swansea boss did not give any assurances over his future, it is clear any parting would be well thought through.
"I don't think managers should look at themselves," he said.
"They should look at the football club, and what you can build and achieve.
"There is a right time and wrong time to leave. Only myself and Wigan will know when it is the right time.
"But I don't believe it is just about jumping on the success train.
"Football should be about working with long-term ambitions and giving opportunities to youngsters."
The best-case scenario for Wigan this season is to avoid relegation and celebrate the first major trophy in their history with a place in the Premier League for a ninth successive season.
More likely is a tumble back into the Championship, for which that precious European spot will be very little comfort. Either way, it is a continual struggle.
Every summer requires rebuilding work. And this one will be no different with Antolin Alcaraz and Franco di Santo amongst those whose contracts are at an end, and James McCarthy and Callum McManaman those coveted by others.
Yet Martinez does not view that as a drawback.
As he noted, if even the mightiest of the clubs from Merseyside and Manchester, in whose shadow Wigan are condemned to operate in, are forced to sell against their will, no one has much of a chance.
"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 for the club.
"If we lost Callum McManaman for £20million we would spend it on three players. That would be better for the club.
"We shouldn't worry about losing players. We are prepared for that. We lost Charles N'Zogbia, we lost Victor Moses.
"We reinvested. That is the way we need to work on a daily basis."
McManaman is the youngster who has shot to prominence in the second half of the season and his man-of-the-match display at Wembley will ensure he is remembered for much more than that wild tackle on Newcastle's Massadio Haidara in March.
A place in Stuart Pearce's England squad for this summer's European Under-21 Championship is surely in the offing, although Martinez prefers to leave such matters to the national team hierarchy.
"Callum is a very easy boy to manage," said Martinez.
"Give him a football and he will take people on. That is what he did on the playground and is still the same now."
Wigan matchwinner Ben Watson was almost lost for words as he reflected on his transformation from broken leg victim to FA Cup hero.
The Wigan midfielder only returned to action last weekend after almost six months out and did not make the starting line-up at Wembley.
But Watson got his chance in the 81st minute and 10 minutes later rose highest to head Shaun Maloney's corner into the top corner of Joe Hart's goal and seal a shock 1-0 victory.
Asked to consider his new position in British football folklore, the 27-year-old could only shake his head and laugh at the improbability of it all.
But Watson did reveal the opportunity to appear in an FA Cup final had spurred him on in his recovery from the broken leg he suffered in a challenge with Liverpool's Raheem Sterling in November.
The midfielder said: "It was a long six months but I worked hard and was around some good people. They helped get me through those six months and this is a dream come true.
"When we got to the final that was always my aim, can I get fit for the final? I did that, I worked hard. It definitely makes it sweeter. Breaking your leg to scoring the winner in an FA Cup final. It's crazy. I hope I never come down from this high."
