Premier League stars have been letting their hair down on holiday this summer ahead of what promises to be a fascinating 2021/22 campaign.
Some top-flight men have jetted off on their vacations later than usual after competing in major tournaments for their national sides, while others had the luxury of longer breaks to recharge their batteries.
Given they collect hefty pay packages, footballers tend to fly out to either the most luxurious of destinations or the biggest party islands.
So where have Premier League players been off to over the summer? We've picked out some of the best places they've visited before the new season.
Mykonos – Jack Grealish, Ben Chilwell, Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips and Ben White
After helping England get to the Euro 2020 final this summer, the Three Lions stars all flew out to Greece's party island to enjoy some down time.
Grealish and Chilwell headed out on the town together and posed for an Instagram photo before doing so, while Phillips and White were also spotted together at the restaurant of famous steak chef Nusret Gokce – aka 'Salt Bae'.
Mount, meanwhile, was seen in the background of Love Island star Josh Denzel's Instagram story at the Principote Beach Club on Thursday night.
Who do you think will win the Premier League next season? Let us know in the comments section below.
Turks and Caicos Islands – Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho
Rashford and soon-to-be Man Utd team-mate Sancho chose a different holiday destination to their England colleagues, instead taking a private jet to Caribbean location Turks and Caicos this week.
The pair jetted out to Providenciales, a beautiful island in the Atlantic Ocean which has been placed on the UK's green list.
They travelled out to the island with a rapper called Chibz Artist, who filmed them boarding the private jet ahead of their summer break.
