The controversy that surround a recent appearance in Ibiza was brushed to one side as close friends Cesc Fabregas, Lionel Messi and Luiz Suárez joined their wives and children for a day out in the Balearic party island on Monday.
The three footballers relaxed aboard a luxury yacht, just days before they return to pre-season training with their respective clubs – Messi and Suárez with FC Barcelona, Fabregas with French side AS Monaco.
And with summer temperatures soaring, the group topped up their tans alongside their loved ones as their boat drifted close to the Mediterranean coastline.

Taking advantage of the hot weather, Spanish midfielder Fabregas, 32, stripped down to a pair of monochrome shorts as he prepared to go snorkelling.
Pulling on a pair of swimming goggles, the former Chelsea midfielder showed off his muscular physique while preparing for his dip in the ocean.
Fabregas was without wife Daniella Semaan, who stayed on the upper deck with Antonella Roccuzzo, the wife of Argentine superstar Messi, as he jumped into the water.

The Lebanese WAG ensured she caught the eye in a vibrant orange bikini and stylish floral print wrap as she topped up her tan alongside Antonella.
With staff on hand to serve food and drinks, the pair were later joined by Messi as they are pizza while enjoying the view from their vantage on on the top deck.
Meanwhile Suárez, 32, treated oldest daughter Delfina, eight, to a jet-ski ride across the Med while wife Sofia relaxed on the boat’s upper deck.

With the footballer entertaining their oldest child, wife Sofia Balbi was on hand to distract nine-month old Lautaro.

Daniella is 12 years older than her husband, but that didn’t stopped romance blossoming between the two, and Cesc proposed in December 2017.
The couple waited until the height of summer – and after the league season and World Cup – to hold their celebratory bash.
It took place in Ibiza and was the perfect place for any football fan hoping to catch a glimpse of some of the game’s biggest names.
They were joined at the nuptials by the three children from their relationship, daughters Lia and Capri – aged six and four – and her son Leonardo, two.
Daniella also has two older children, Maria and Joseph, from her marriage to Elie Taktouk.

Their appearance in Ibiza comes after Messi was reportedly confronted by a drunken supporter who attempted to ‘pick a fight’ with the Barcelona superstar.
The Argentine’s night out in Ibiza took a turn for the worse amid unsavoury scenes, with footage appearing to show Messi being escorted out of the busy nightclub over the weekend.
It is believed that there was no wrongdoing on Messi’s part, and the potential situation was defused quickly.
A short video, posted on Twitter, shows the Barcelona ace being led out of the club whilst surrounded by a hoard of security guards.

With the mercurial forward’s holiday almost at an end, the recent footage adds an unwanted element of drama before he rejoins Ernesto Valverde’s squad.
However, a clip later posted by the same user shows Messi leaving the scene apparently unharmed.
The superstars have been staying at the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, which boasts of 415 ‘luxurious rooms and suites’ on its website and labels itself the No 1 open air club on the island.
