Not on a wave­length – Diego Costa was sold to Chelsea in July 2014, paving the way for Griez­mann’s re­cruit­ment from Real So­ciedad. The pair have been cast to­gether since the for­mer’s, be­lated, win­ter re­turn. But just like in both semi­fi­nals against Ar­se­nal, a lack of chem­istry was ap­par­ent un­til a fine 89th-minute pass even­tu­ally led to Gabi’s third. This gains per­ti­nence if Griez­mann does move to Barca. If he is un­able to reg­u­larly link up with Ar­gentina icon Lionel Messi, then his stay will be an un­happy one.
