BEST MATES Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas are back on holiday together – and could be working out where the ex-Chelsea ace will play next.
The superstar footballers headed to Ibiza with their families during their summer break.Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas enjoyed a holiday in Ibiza together[/caption] The PSG star took every precaution by topping up on sun screen[/caption] Antonela wowed in an aqua blue bikini on the boat[/caption] Fabregas left little to the imagination with his skimpy shorts[/caption]
And they have gone all out by renting out a stunning £70,000-a-week yacht in the Meditteranean Sea.
Messi was joined by his wife Antonela and their three boys – Mateo, nine, Thiago, six, and Ciro, four.
His former Barcelona team-mate Fabregas had wife Daniella as well as their three kids, daughters Lia and Capri, born in 2013 and 2015, and son Leonardo, born in 2017.
The families were clearly feeling very relaxed as they soaked up the sun on the sea.

Their 27-metre Shalimar II yacht was refurbished in 2018 and can accommodate up to eight guests overnight – although it is unclear if the families squeezed their kids in or just went for a day trip.
Messi rocked a pair of jazzy colourful shorts as Antonela stunned in an aqua blue bikini.
Fabregas, meanwhile, opted for a similarly-bold choice with his tight trunks as Daniella chose a bright pink swim set.
The happy couples – who are close friends and regularly holiday together, often with Luis Suarez’s family – were all smiles as they made the most of the yacht’s facilities, including a jet ski and a doughnut attachment the kids loved.Pals Daniella Semaan and Roccuzzo enjoyed catching up with each other[/caption] Messi and Fabregas both endured difficult seasons in Ligue 1[/caption] Antonela and Lionel were feeling the love as they cosied up together[/caption]

Fabregas, a two-time Premier League winner, was released by Monaco this weekend after three-and-a-half years in the principality.
The former Barca academy star made just two Ligue 1 appearances in an injury-plagued campaign – which he described as the “worst year of his life”.
Speaking in May, the 35-year-old said: “It’s certain that it’s finished between me and Monaco.
“My contract expires in June and I am looking to depart. My head needs a departure elsewhere.
“It’s been not only the worst year of my career but the worst year of my life because when I’m not happy in football, I can’t be happy in life.
“I have suffered a lot this year. it’s been difficult mentally.”
Messi also had a rough season, his debut campaign in France, managing just six league goals – his lowest tally since 2005-06.Fabregas took his kids out on the doughnut on the water[/caption] Messi did the same as they relaxed away from the pitch[/caption] Fabregas and Daniella are unsure where they will be living next season[/caption] Antonela made sure to top up the tan in the Med[/caption]
