AFTER a long, hard season footballers love to unwind – just like the rest of us.
With their mega salaries they are able to jet off to some of the most glamorous locations in the world.
The likes of Wayne Rooney, Dele Alli, Cristiano Ronaldo and more have shared snaps on social media soaking up the sun in these dream destinations.
But where did they all go?
ALLI, GREALISH, SANCHO AND MADDISON
While some holidaymakers are shunning Spain after a spike in coronavirus cases, Dele Alli, Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and James Maddison are lapping up the attention in Ibiza.
Spurs star Alli and Aston Villa hero Grealish were seen enjoying a couple of cold drinks with their female companions.
While Alli and Maddison were spied hanging out at O Beach Club a previous evening.
Separately, Sancho was seen enjoying time on a yacht with a mystery brunette.
The Manchester United target also wasn’t slacking on his fitness, running shirtless and pumping some iron during his trip.

For 14 days they’ll have to remain in quarantine, when they return.
But they don’t look like they mind that.
