Sergio Aguero purchased a watch for every member of staff in Manchester City's main building before leaving for Barcelona - as well as entering them into a raffle to win his cars.


Aguero spent a decade at the Etihad and became City's top goalscorer during a decorated spell in England.

Monday saw him agree to join Barcelona at the end of June and the Argentine international decided to do something special.

Per The Athletic, Aguero bought every member of staff either a Hublot or Tag Heuer watch, engraved with the classy message of 'Gracias - Kun Aguero!'

The prices of said watches are between £1000 and £1650, with Aguero buying around 60 of them for first-team staff.

He then entered everyone into a raffle to win his recently purchased Range Rover Evoque - which was won by an incredibly grateful kitman.

One final gesture saw Aguero make a sizeable donation to the end of season cash fund, which goes towards buying Christmas presents for support staff.

The 32-year-old played his last game for City in Saturday's Champions League final, which they lost 1-0 to Chelsea.

48 hours later, he'd jetted over to Catalonia to be officially unveiled as Barcelona's first summer signing.

"We all know that Barcelona are the best club in the world so I think I made a great decision to be here and I hope to help the team," Aguero told Spanish media per Sky Sports.

"Of course it is a step forward in my career and hopefully I can help the team win things. I want to play and help this squad, and if the team does it well, I will be happy individually.

"I want to send a big hug to everyone, to all the supporters I will try to give my best and hopefully the fans will enjoy my skills. They enjoyed me in other shirts but now I am here.

"I have changed a little bit. When I arrived in Europe to Atletico Madrid at 18 years old, I learned a lot, then I played for Manchester City in the Premier League.

"Now I have changed my way of playing, but I have an idea of where I can play and I will try to help my team-mates with my experience."
