Maple with crossed branches

last month

Okay so i really need some help with my Japanese maple tree. Id love to know what the more experienced gardeners think of this current situation and what i should do.

i bought a reasonably mature tree and planted it in Summer but now its winter i can see rhat two of my main branches are crossing over and have quite a tight angle between them. Should i cut one off? They’re quite big already and I’m not sure if this would stress the tree more than it’s worth. Please let me know what you think i should do!
