But Aguero's father, Leonel del Castillo, has questioned whether the tears of the Man City boss were genuine.
He slammed the Spaniard and says he never wanted Aguero at the club.
Via the Manchester Evening News, he said: "I don't believe his tears. For me, he never wanted Kun. He always wants to be the main man and not the players.
"He says that he [Aguero] is irreplaceable and he does not have him in the squad.
"There are things about Guardiola, he is a great coach. But from one day to the next the players change you, the environment changes. You never know if you are a starter or not.
"There is someone who says if you are not here to stay at the club and you have no choice but to change. He [Aguero] was [allowed to stay] until the last time [he renewed his contract] but it was not possible [this time] - team where he is an idol."
Aguero has since completed his transfer to Barcelona, signing a two-year deal at the Camp Nou.
Upon his arrival, he said: "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.
"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."
He added: "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."
Will Guardiola rue the decision to let Aguero walk away from the Etihad? Let us know what you think.
