The fallout from Suarez’s comments to the Guardian and Telegraph have raised the blood pressure of many Liverpool fans, with the Uruguayan saying he feels “betrayed” by the club for allegedly going back on a promise to let him go this summer.
Wenger, however, told Al Jazeera Sport today that the North London side’s move for Suarez has been put on “standby”.
“At the moment the situation is on standby. I heard that [Suarez is considering legal action to force a move], but this is sometimes linked with things that you don’t know as a potential buyer,” Wenger told the television channel, with quotes picked up by Sky Sports.
“It is nothing to do with us. We have been told that the player wants to leave Liverpool and that is why we have acted.
“I really don’t know what will be decided by Liverpool.”
