Last week Messi celebrated his 35th birthday in Ibiza, and prior to that he spent time in his native Argentina.
Messi will soon return to PSG for pre-season training, where he is set to be working under a new manager, with Christophe Galtier poised to replace Mauricio Pochettino.
Suarez, who played with Messi at Barcelona, was also joined by his wife Sofía Balbi
In his first season at PSG Messi won the Ligue 1 title, although he mustered just six goals in the league.
Fabregas, meanwhile, is set to become a free agent following a frustrating season at Monaco during which he was hampered by injury.
Fabregas insisted recently that he wanted to continue playing, saying: ‘First, I still want to play. I don’t want to end like this. It’s been too bad a year to end like this. I want to have fun, to finish with good feelings.
Fabregas and Messi played together at Barca at youth level and in first team for three years
Messi and Suarez won an incredible 14 trophies in six years together at the Nou Camp
‘Nothing is decided, I am listening. I am open to everything. Maybe the level of club will have to drop, but there are teams of a lower level in the Champions League. One thing is clear. I’ll go to a club where I’ll play, where they believe in me.’
Suarez scored eleven league goals for Atletico Madrid last season but he is also on the lookout for a new club.
Reports have indicated that Suarez, 35, is close to signing for Argentine side River Plate.
Messi and Suarez played together at Barcelona between 2014 and 2020. Meanwhile, Messi and Fabregas were at the club together between 2011 and 2014 having previously played in the same Barcelona youth team.
