Having lost the services of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera in the last six months, United were reportedly keen on signing a central midfielder.
A number of names were linked with the Red Devils over the past few months, including Milinkovic-Savic as well as Sporting Lisbon's Bruno Fernandes.
The Lazio midfielder believes the links with United was nothing more than a newspaper story.
“You’ll never hear me say that I want to leave Lazio," the Serbian told Sport Plus.
“I never mentioned a possible transfer to Manchester United, it was just a newspaper story.
“The situation doesn’t weigh on me because I know there’s still time for a possible transfer.
“If something has to happen, it will. There hasn’t been anything until now and we’re moving forward.”
