Arsène Wenger says Arsenal must accept they do not have control over their push to make Real Madrid's Karim Benzema their big-name attacking signing as it is reliant on the Spanish club being successful in their attempts to sign Liverpool's Luis Suárez.
Arsenal have already missed out on Suárez this summer after they were told about a supposed release clause in his contract and they tested it with a bid. Yet the clause was not binding and the £40000001 offer was rejected by Liverpool leaving the advice that Wenger was given open to considerable question.
"I don't want to speak in detail about that" Wenger said. "It's not the moment. One day why not? I've 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. You've certainly tried to go out with a girl and find she has chosen someone else. You don't commit suicide."
