Erling Haaland bid farewell to his Borussia Dortmund team-mates by lavishing them with expensive gifts.

Bild reports that the striker, who will join Manchester City in a £51 million ($63m) deal this summer, gave each of his 33 Dortmund co-stars a luxury Rolex watch.

The watches are estimated to have cost between €13,000 to €15,000.

What do we know about Haaland and the Rolex watches?

The watches were delivered by two limousines from Netherlands - including a personal try-on service for every team-mate.

Each watch came in a special box that was adorned with three photos: one with Haaland's shirt number, one with the 21-year-old in a celebration pose and another with the DFB-Pokal in his hands.
