The poster parodies one paid for by Cityfans when the Argentinian joined the club from United in 2009.

The original billboard showed the striker celebrating a goal and read'Welcome to Manchester Carlos'.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST), who paid for the poster, said it was a 'warm-hearted message, from some old friends.'
