Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic seems to taunt City’s new signing Claudio Bravo, after he sends the Chilean some sports gear and ‘welcomes’ him to Manchester.
Zlatan has made a blistering start to his Manchester United career, scoring three goals in as many appearances in the Premier League. He is currently United’s top scorer, and looks set to lead United’s attack during the upcoming Manchester Derby.
The Giant Swede is never one to shy away from controversy, and he has continued showing the fans his lion-like attitude after he posted a short clip on social media.
In the video, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was recorded taking some AZ branded training gear, boxing it up, and addressing it to Claudio Bravo. He captioned the video: “Welcome to Manchester! Here’s some training gear, you’re gonna need it. See you Saturday. #MUFC #ManchesterDerby @azsportswear.”
The video has since gone viral, crossing 1.3 million views on Instagram. Bravo is certain to have seen the message, and probably tried out the gear already!
Pep Guardiola brought in Claudio Bravo this summer in a £17 million deal with Barcelona, after he deemed Joe Hart unable to cope with his new philosophies. Hart since joined Italian side Torino on a loan deal, as he contemplates his future after spending a decade with Manchester City.
Bravo will most probably make his City debut this weekend during the Manchester Derby.
City will travel to Old Trafford, as Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho face each other once again in what will prove to be a crucial encounter for both clubs.
Jose Mourinho will most probably be without Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who is recovering from an injury he sustained during an international match with Armenia. Fellaini and Luke Shaw have also suffered knocks, but they most likely will start in the Derby.
On the other side of Manchester, Guardiola will be without Sergio Aguero, as the Argentine begins serving his three-match suspension for violent conduct.
