SERGIO AGUERO has given an engraved luxury watch to every member of Manchester City’s first-team staff to mark his departure from the club after 10 years.

The 33-year-old, who was unveiled as a Barcelona player on Monday, also raffled his Range Rover Evoque, with kit manager Ally Marland winning the £40k car.

As first revealed by Sam Lee of The Athletic, every member of club's first-team staff at their City Football Academy building - totalling about 60 people - was presented with a Hublot or Tag Heuer watch. Each was engraved with the words “Gracias! Kun Aguero”.

The striker also gave staff members a raffle ticket for the chance to win his recently-purchased Range Rover Evoque and the winner was Marland, who has been with the club since June 2012.

A video of the handover of the vehicle has been posted on social media and can be viewed above. The Argentine also contributed a significant amount - “far above what is customary”, according the Lee — to a cash pot for staff Christmas presents.
