Sergio Aguero shelled out a staggering £60,000 to buy every single member of Manchester City’s backroom staff a watch and enter them into a raffle to win his brand new car.
The Argentine legend, 32, will leave the Etihad at the end of the month and join Barcelona on a free transfer after agreeing personal terms and completing his medical at the Nou Camp.
But Aguero had some incredible parting gifts for the 60-strong backroom staff at City after a decade at the club.
According to The Athletic, the Man City icon bought everyone either a Tag Heuer or Hublot watch, with some models – including the Tag Heuer Formula 1, valued at up to £1,650. Each watch was engraved with the words: “Gracias! Kun Aguero.”
The striker also entered every member of staff into a raffle to win his Range Rover Evoque. It’s claimed one of Aguero’s favourite Man City employees won the car – one of the City kit men. The Athletic claim Aguero is a fan of the unnamed member of staff’s ‘work ethic and personality’.
The generous Argentine is also said to have contributed ‘far above’ the norm to the end-of-season kitty that goes towards staff Christmas presents later in the year.
Aguero was officially unveiled as a Barcelona player on Monday – just 48 hours after the Champions League final defeat at the hands of Chelsea.
The forward penned a two-year deal – which includes an £86million release clause – to team up with Lionel Messi, before calling it a ‘step forward’ in his career.
