When Arsenal bid just one pound more than £40 million for Suarez, they must have thought they'd done enough to activate an escape clause in the Liverpool striker's contract.
However, it wasn't the case. Suarez was not able to wiggle out of his contract at Anfield and remains on Merseyside.
When asked if Arsenal received bad advice about the clause in Suarez's contract, Wenger told The Mirror:
I don't want to speak in detail about that. It's not the moment. One day, why not? I think it's not the moment to talk about that. I just said it's over.
We have to get on with our lives. You seem to know as much as I know about the situation so I don't think we need for me to clarify that.
It's staggering that a club of Arsenal's size made such a huge error about such an important facet of the deal.
Arsenal pursued Suarez into a dead end.
