LIONEL MESSI is enjoying his time away in Ibiza with former Barcelona team-mates Cesc Fabregas and Luis Suarez.
The Paris Saint-Germain star turned 35 on Friday in Sa Ferradura – just off the north coast of the Spanish island.
And 24 hours after celebrating the milestone, his wife Antonela Roccuzzo shared pictures on Instagram of the three ex-Barcelona stars with their partners.
Messi, Antonela and their three children Thiago, nine, Mateo, six, and Ciro, four, have been staying in a six-bed £260,000-a-week mansion on the island with Fabregas and wife Daniella Semaan.
Now Atletico Madrid striker Suarez has joined them with wife Sofia Balbi as the three footballers soak up the Spanish sunshine.
On Messi’s 35th birthday, 5,000 schoolchildren sang “Happy Birthday” to him in his native city of Rosario.
Youngsters from a youth orchestra in the Argentinian city led the way with the birthday tribute at the iconic National Flag Memorial near the shore of the Parana River.
The breathtaking accolade was televised on local TV, forming part of a new chapter of a programme called Mundo Leo which is dedicated to the legendary footballer.
Former Liverpool winger Maxi Rodriguez was among those who appeared on screen to wish Messi a happy 35th birthday before the children made their voices heard with their singing.
Messi is enjoying a summer away from football after winning the Copa America with Argentina 12 months ago.
