It’s that time of year again. Summer has hit and football fans don’t know what to do with themselves while waiting for the new season to start.

However, players have no problem filling their time.

It’s been two long years for footballers around the world and the players deserve a good break.

And it turns out that many of the world’s aviation stars spend their summers very differently, ranging from indulging with a few drinks to being on the main stage at a festival in front of thousands of people.

talkSPORT.com takes a look at what the players are up to, as well as Crouchy, who has lived his best life.

Grealish, Rice and Robbo take on Vegas

After proving to be Man City’s party animal at the end of the season, it’s no surprise that Jack Grealish is hosting the festivities ahead of the start of pre-season training.

Except that instead of his evenings taking place in the rain of Manchester, he organizes them under the sun of Las Vegas.

The England international began his post-season celebrations in Ibiza but has since been seen in Nevada dancing at a pool party with friends, while Liverpool left-back Andy Robertso also attended.

Meanwhile, West Ham superstar Declan Rice was also seen in Las Vegas, after meeting one of his favorite musical artists – Australian DJ ‘Fisher’ – on the flight, as young British stars enjoy some free time in Sin. Town.

Ox asks the question

While Grealish, Rice and Robertson party in America, Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opted for a much more relaxed holiday.

However, he may not have been too relaxed throughout the trip, considering he was about to ask his girlfriend to marry him.

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has been with Oxlade-Chamberlain for five years, and the couple have a son, Axel, together.

The scenic location of the proposal is unknown, but the Reds star has clearly made sure his free time is well spent.

And hopefully he can lift his heels and relax properly now that Perrie has said yes!

Rashford and Ronaldo rumble

In true Cristiano Ronaldo style, the Manchester United legend simply hasn’t stopped working, despite the season ending almost a month ago.

The Portugal international has opted to spend his summer in the gym, as his latest Instagram posts show.

Looking as torn as ever, Ronaldo simply captioned one of his selfies: “I feel great.”

Meanwhile, fellow United star Marcus Rashford is also spending his summer at the gym.

After another disappointing season, where he scored just four goals in all competitions, the 24-year-old will no doubt try to prepare to impress new boss Erik ten Hag.

Filming himself doing shoulder presses, Rashford cuts a jagged figure in one of his latest Instagram posts.

“Three sessions and feeling great after an amazing break with amazing people,” he wrote.

Neymar dealt a good hand

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has also surprised fans with how he spends his holidays, having also traveled to Las Vegas.

It seems the striker’s talents extend beyond football, with the Brazilian superstar posting on his Instagram that he was taking part in the World Series of Poker ‘Super Turbo’ tournament over the weekend.

Neymar came in a very respectable 49th out of 2,227 players.

He also won £4,000 – although that’s barely a drop in the ocean for a player who earns more than Lionel Messi at PSG.

England stars shoot hoops

While Neymar has dabbled in card games, some of England’s top players have tried another sport in the United States – which is apparently the place to be this summer.

People like Trevoh Chalobah, Jadon Sancho, Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount all moved to California.

But while some footballers went to America to party, these played basketball.

With the caption ‘NBA London’, the stars were filmed shooting hoops together – Sancho even scoring a cool three-pointer.

Crouchy is back dancing

Peter Crouch, now retired, is also living his best life this summer…

While he hung up his boots a few years ago, Crouchy’s dance moves that went viral this weekend deserve the spotlight.

The former Liverpool and Tottenham striker was at the Isle of Wight festival, where rock band Kasabian were performing after dark.

And as they started performing “Fire”, a tall man in sunglasses and a hoodie emerged from the darkness onstage.

And it was none other than Crouchy, who was known to enjoy a good dance during his playing days.
