The Filipino superstar secured a wide points victory over Brandon Rios for the vacant WBO International welterweight title last weekend - prompting widespread speculation over his plans for 2014.
With Pacquiao seemingly back to something approaching his best at the age of 34, the long-awaited clash with Floyd Mayweather Jr may finally take place - but the man known as 'Money' was not mentioned when Roach was quizzed over the next move.
Instead, Roach outlined his desire for Pacquiao to face Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time but admitted that Bradley, who edged a split decision over Pacquiao in the summer of 2012, was also a viable option.
Roach told World Boxing News: "Personally, I want Marquez but I'm not sure if we can get him. He wants a lot of money. Bradley is also a possibility. He wants revenge (against Bradley)."
Bob Arum, who promotes both Pacquiao and Bradley under the Top Rank banner, has revealed that a clash with Mayweather Jr would be the richest fight in history at around $300m.
