Have you considered "using git cherry-pick can be used to backport
changes one by one" [1]

rebase vs merge vs cherry-pick is a topic of constant debates and
opinionated practices indeed [2]

The cherry-pick has its cons, like duplicate commits (BTW, it is a
good idea to learn more about pros and cons of cherry-pick before you
apply this technique).
That is why workflows like GitFlow require to prepare a hotfix in a
topic branch which is merged back to long-lived branch.
In your case, I assume, you've done your work in long-lived master, so
I think easiest is to pick that change from master
and port it to the develop branch [3].

I would cherry-pick.
