It was yet another long and enduring Premier League campaign for all involved with both Manchester City and Liverpool especially, relentlessly battling it out for another English top-flight title.
This inevitably took its toll on both the players and managers, with both needing to make the most of the short summer break without a summer tournament in the way of relaxation before it all starts again in early August.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola evidently got the memo, and was recently pictured this week living it up in Barbados with his wife Cristina and his immediate family.
Photos published by The Sun newspaper showed the Catalan coach enjoying the great weather by the ocean.
According to The Sun, an onlooker said, “Pep (Guardiola) is renowned for his love of fancy footwork, but he was a bit tentative as he walked along the beach towards the waves."
“He dipped his toe in but didn't seem too keen on going in too deep so wandered back to his sun lounger to chill out and admire the view."
This is on the back of Pep Guardiola, 51, winning a fourth Premier League title for Manchester City in just five seasons, undoubtedly earning his exclusive Caribbean break.
It has been widely reported that the club have agreed financial terms with Leeds United over the transfer of midfielder Kalvin Phillips in an initial £42 million deal, which could rise to £45 million with add-ons.
Phillips - an England international - will likely provide cover for Spanish international Rodri in the defensive midfield role, but can also play further upfield if required in what is regarded by many to be the Ilkay Gundogan role.
The news comes after Manchester City had already sealed the transfers of forwards Julian Alvarez from River Plate and Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund ahead of the upcoming campaign.
Manchester City are seemingly looking for a full squad shake-up with Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, and Oleksandr Zinchenko all among the rumoured departures, with the former reportedly agreeing a deal with Arsenal on Friday evening.
Manchester City fans will be hoping that Barbados might just provide the relaxation and recovery that will inspire Pep Guardiola to reach new heights with the squad next season.
Elsewhere in the Manchester City first-team set-up, a number of the player have jetted off to all corners of the globe in search of rest and relaxation.
Jack Grealish's well-publicised trip to Las Vegas has now been accompanied by a trip to Mykonos.
Joao Cancelo and family have accompanied a short break in Dubai with a trip to the Seychelles.
As for Riyad Mahrez, it was a city break in Barcelona that kick-started his summer.
