Wenger unsure over Luis Suarez clause

Arsene Wenger has said Arsenal are unsure whether Luis Suarez’s contract contains a release clause allowing him to leave Liverpool, telling Al-Jazeera Sport: "At the moment the situation is on standby."

Arsenal saw a £40,000,001 bid for Suarez rejected last month, having seemingly been advised that the Reds were obliged to accept offers over £40 million.

A senior Liverpool source subsequently told the Daily Telegraph: “We’ve all examined the clause in detail. All it obliges is for us to enter good faith negotiations about Luis’s future. There is absolutely no obligation to sell and that is very clear."

However, the Uruguay international, 26, told The Guardian this week that he had been told last year he would be allowed to join a Champions League club this summer and that he believed the clause in his contract was binding.

"I have the club's word and we have the written contract and we are happy to take this to the Premier League for them to decide the case but I do not want it to come to that,” he said.

Wenger, though, maintains he does not know whether Suarez is entitled to a move.

On the subject of Suarez’s potential legal action against his club, Wenger said: "I heard that but this is sometimes linked with things that you don't know as a potential buyer.

"That is the story between Suarez and Liverpool and I don't know what has been said, what has been promised and what has been written, and only Suarez and Liverpool that can decide that. It's nothing to do with us. We have been told that the player wants to leave Liverpool and that's why we've acted."
