VIDEO: Better the Devil You Know! Zlatan Stars in New Advert Honouring Him as a Man Utd Legend

Danny Ryan

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been labelled a Manchester United legend in a new advert by the club's partner company, Casillero del Diablo.

The brilliant video sees the towering Swedish striker being lead by teammate Michael Carrick into a tattoo studio where he then has the Red Devils emblem and the Chilean wine brand's logo tattooed on his body off camera.

Afterwards, Ibrahimovic strolls out to be greeted by some past and present United stars; Sir Bobby Charlton, Andy Cole, Antonio Valencia and David De Gea make up some pretty good company for the 35-year-old.

At the end, the host of stars toast the enigmatic Ibrahimovic as the screen cuts to the words 'another legendary devil' alongside one of the bottles of wine, which is served in the VIP suites at Old Trafford.

The symbolic video represents the cult status that the Swedish striker has gained at the club since his arrival in the summer.

Few expected the ageing goal machine to replicate his form at Paris Saint-Germain but, astonishingly, Ibrahimovic has done just that.

28 goals in all competitions, including 17 in the league and an EFL Cup winning brace, is simply a ridiculous record for one of the game's true legends.

Ibrahimovic was shortlisted for the PFA Player of the Year alongside the likes of Eden Hazard, Harry Kane and Alexis Sanchez.

It is unclear whether the striker will remain in the Premier League next season with rumoured interest from the MLS, however, United fans and Jose Mourinho will be desperate for their talisman to remain for at least one more season. A club legend has been born.
