Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has stressed that he has not had any contact with Barcelona, following reports that the Catalan club are considering him as a possible replacement for Ronald Koeman.
Martinez has a contract with Belgium until June 2022, yet with Koeman's days numbered at the Camp Nou, the opportunity may arise for him to return home to Catalonia and take charge of Barcelona.
The Belgium head coach emphasised that he is currently focused on the Nations League and World Cup qualification, although he didn't completely commit his future to the Red Devils.
"I would love [Belgium] to be the first European country to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. That's the challenge after the Nations League final," Martinez told HLN on Friday.
"But... in football you never know what tomorrow will bring. I wake up every morning as Belgium coach until the last day of my contract, but I realise that many circumstances can arise along the way."
When asked explicitly about whether Barcelona had made contact with him, though, Martinez was clear.
"There is absolutely nothing. There has been no contact," he stated.
Martinez enjoys a very good relationship with Barcelona's assistant sporting director, Jordi Cruyff, but the Catalan coach does not think that will have an impact on him whether he is approached about taking charge at the Camp Nou.
"The basis of my friendship with Jordi is that we separate our private and professional lives," he commented.
"At no time did I ask Jordi about my situation at Barcelona. I don't think he has the role of appointing a possible new coach either."
