Jose Mourinho has urged Manchester United fans to camp outside Zlatan Ibrahimovic's house all night to convince the striker to extend his contract for another season.

Ibrahimovic's late winner took his goals tally to 20 in the past 22 games and 26 this season as he again rode to his team's rescue before declaring himself the Special One.

The 35-year-old, a contender for player of the season, agreed a 12-month contract with United last summer with the option of another year, which he has yet to accept.

"I never bank for a player to play for me," Mourinho said. "One day Zlatan decided to go to Barcelona [from Internazionale] and I was very sad that I did nothing to try to stop him.

"But, if needed, I think maybe United fans can go to the door of his house and stay there all night. We all want him to stay with us."
