Manchester City footballers flew 22 Instagram models out to Cheshire for a ‘Bunga Bunga’ style party at a luxury hotel and spa resort.
The women were flown over to Manchester on Sunday before checking into the £150-a-night Mere Golf Resort in Knutsford prior to the team’s match against Aston Villa that afternoon.
The team beat Villa 6-1 and it was thought the party had occurred with the permission of manager Pep Guardiola.
Fixers close to the club are believed to have organised the team bonding night, but it was not clear if Guardiola had been aware that the models were also in attendance.
Many of the models took to Instagram to document their Cheshire escape with videos in the spa and other photos that showed them relaxing, dressed in glamorous clothing.
Speaking to the Sun, a source said it had been a delayed Christmas party for the players and that a liaison officer for the club had spent months organising the soirée.
‘I think their Wags will be surprised to hear these women were invited, but that they weren’t’.
The source also added that they could have been members of the Manchester City supporters’ club in Milan.
‘Either way, they are very beautiful and looked like they had a really fun time. I assume the players did too.’
