Messi and Fabregas are very close friends, having first met as children in Barca's youth team.

Their families are also very close and this was not the first time they had all been on holiday together.

Before jetting off to Ibiza, Messi and Fabregas attended the wedding of Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba and model Romarey Ventura in Sevilla last weekend.

Fabregas and his wife, Daniella Semaan, are set to be on the move in the coming weeks.

Midfielder Fabregas is looking for a new club after being released by Ligue 1 side Monaco.

Fabregas, 35, made 68 appearances for Monaco after joining from Chelsea in January 2019.
