- A group of Manchester City’s Treble winners chartered a private jet to Ibiza
- They continued the party started after Saturday’s Champions League final
- Players expected back for Monday night’s Manchester city centre bus parade
A large group of treble-winning Manchester City players have jetted out to Ibiza for a night of partying ahead of a return back for today’s trophy parade.
Mail Sport understands that those involved – who did not include manager Pep Guardiola – chartered a private jet from Manchester to the Balearic island to mark their history-making exploits in style.
They are expected back early this afternoon ahead of another evening of partying for the blue half of Manchester. Erling Haaland was one of the players pictured in Ibiza by local news outlet Periódico de Ibiza and Formentera.
Guardiola and his squad returned to the city yesterday after their dramatic 1-0 victory over Inter Milan secured the Champions League, with Europe’s major trophy following the Premier League and FA Cup into the Etihad cabinet.
From the Ataturk Stadium, the group headed to their hotel for a party with striker Erling Haaland entertaining on the DJ decks.

The festivities went on until 8am. Many sported sunglasses as they disembarked their flight in Manchester along with their trophy.
However, it would appear that some managed a second wind – hopping on to another flight for a consecutive night of celebrations.
Parade gates open at 5pm with City players expected on stage from 7.30pm.
It is understood the group were given permission for the trip by the club with strict instructions that they were to be back well in advance of the parade.
The Ibiza trip wasn’t for everyone, however. Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Stefan Ortega went for a dinner with City staff at Chinese restaurant Tattu in Manchester on Sunday night.
De Bruyne, who went off injured in the final, attended with wife Michele, arriving at 9.30pm and leaving just before midnight, while Gundogan arrived at around the same time.
Tattu’s menu includes a £74.50 per person sharing option featuring caramel soy aged beef fillet, red snapper tom yum, aromatic crispy duck pancakes and seven spiced seared tuna.
For £99.50, guests can indulge in a menu of Japanese black wagyu, Shanghai black cod and dim sum, with desserts including a white chocolate dragon egg made of coconut, passionfruit and mango.

Guardiola and his squad will depart on an open-top bus from Tonman Street, Deansgate, at approximately 6.30pm.
The bus will take a route through St Mary’s Gate, Cross Street and King Street before finishing on the corner of Princess Street and Portland Street.
A live stage show will take place on Oxford Street, with entertainment from 5.30pm, and the players will take to the stage at about 7.30pm.
City flew home from Turkey on Sunday afternoon to be greeted by flag-waving fans at Manchester Airport.
The players posed for pictures with the European Cup on their flight, and the trophy even made its way up to the pilots in the cockpit.
Jack Grealish, who seemingly stayed in his match kit during Saturday’s all-nighter having sung to Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Everywhere’ in the dressing room, was seen making use of the intercom on board.

Having arrived back at their hotel from the Ataturk Stadium at 3am, City’s players, staff and their families partied beyond dawn.
Grealish led the celebrations, held on an open-air terrace at the JW Marriott hotel in Istanbul, where rooms cost £1,600 a night.
The England star could be seen rapping as a DJ played thumping disco music in the background.
As dawn broke at around 4.30am, a video clip showed the players still going strong as they celebrated their historic achievement.
The players only snatched three hours sleep before they boarded the coach for their flight back to Manchester on an Etihad airways plane painted in the club’s blue and white colours.
Grealish could be seen with his head poking out of a window on the roof of the bus as fans clapped and cheered as they left.
Erling Haaland posted a picture of himself on his Instagram smoking a huge cigar while later he shared one of him and Grealish with blue face paint adding: ‘Love this guy.’
