The Serbian international has attracted the interest of a host of clubs including United, Internazionale, Milan and Juventus in recent months.
United have had club representatives taking in a lot of Lazio games recently with Stankovic and Argentine forward Claudio Lopez the reported subjects of interest.
The Premiership side's chief scout Martin Ferguson is believed to have watched the 24-year-old in action in last week's Coppa Italia clash with city rivals Roma.
Stankovic, who is currently away on international duty, admitted he was flattered by United's interest, but insisted that he was unaware of any talks going on between the two clubs.
"I have understood that Alex Ferguson's brother was in the stands watching me and (Claudio) Lopez during the cup game against Roma," said Stankovic.
"Fortunately, I played well, so I hope he will have good things to report back in England.
"I don't know about any negotiations between the clubs, but I'll ask as soon as I come back to Italy."
Stankovic has been in superb form this season, helping Lazio challenge at the top of Serie A, but it is feared that the cash-strapped club may be forced to offload him to raise some funds.
