The Tweet sent out on Sunday morning read: ‘Guardiola never wanted my brother since his arrival at City.’

Having been asked why he had deleted the message by several social media followers, he said: ‘Many toxic people, too many.’ 

However, he insisted he was happy people saw his Tweet before he deleted it and insisted that he would ‘write it again’.

He said: ‘Perfect, I’m glad people have seen it. And I’ll write it again if I want.’

Aguero joined City in 2011 from Atletico Madrid and made his final appearance for the club during their Champions League defeat on Saturday.

The 32-year-old striker, who came off the bench in the second half but was unable to help his team-mates bounce back after Kai Havertz’s goal, leaves City this summer as the club’s all-time top scorer with 260 goals.

Aguero has enjoyed a decade of success at City, claiming five Premier League titles – three under Guardiola – but the Champions League has been the one trophy that has always eluded him. 

A move to Barcelona now beckons with a teary Guardiola confirming on the last game of the Premier League season that Aguero ‘is close’ to moving to the Nou Camp and is ‘irreplaceable’ for City.

The Spanish manager said: ‘He’s a special person. He’s so nice. 

‘He helped me a lot … We cannot replace him, we cannot. There are many players in this club – Joe Hart, David Silva [are others] – who helped us to be this club. We have his legacy. He showed his quality in 30 minutes.’ 

Despite what Aguero’s brother claimed on social media, Guardiola has always spoken highly of the striker and talked about their close bond on numerous occasions.

‘Sergio is irreplaceable. I could say in terms of numbers he could be replaceable but it’s not easy. When you see around 360 games and more than 250 goals, the amount of titles,’ he said previously.

‘He’s a legend, the best striker I ever had at this club… but he’s irreplaceable in the mind for our fans, to our people and to the players that played alongside him or the manager who worked with him.

‘A fantastic person and human being. I think if his mind is still aggressive like he is, he can stand his career longer for two, three, four or five years. 

‘I still think he has interesting goals to score for us this season. Fortunately, he’s only been out for one season. We’ve had a lot of success but we’ve missed him in some moments.

‘To have a special quality like this is so difficult to find – the sense of goal, the quality, he’s sharp.

‘Especially when he’s sometimes angry and he’s upset he makes energy in his legs and is able to close to the box to make these runs for 5-10 metres… 

‘When I took over the club, he was one of the guys who helped. Not just him – we had Joe Hart, Pablo [Zabaleta], Vincent [Kompany] and David [Silva].

‘Many, many players helped this team to take a step forward and of course he was one of them.

‘When he came here the club was at one level and he helped put the club at a higher level and that’s why all the people and the fans are grateful.’
