Manchester United has been chosen to pursue Perisic, who was wanted by José Mourinho a year ago.
Since then, the actions of the Inter Milan star have gone up after he fired Croatia to its first final of the World Cup in Russia last month.
Manchester United is looking for a far right with waiting days for the transfer, and recent comments from Perisic have put the fans in a frenzy.
But Stone tweeted: “I did not say anything to Reis Perisic at this time.”
Mourinho has cut a missed figure during the preseason, fueling fears that United is heading for another turbulence campaign.
And he used his pre-match appearance today to beat Ed Woodward for the lack of transfer activity.
He said: “My CEO [Ed Woodward] knows what I want for quite some time. He knows what I want.
“I know he does everything he can for me; I still have a few days to wait to see what will happen.”
Perisic, meanwhile, has sent Manchester United fans to collapse after admitting he would be open to a change in the Premier League.
The Inter Milan star has never stumbled on his arm in English football.
And he said: “I would like to put myself to the test in all major leagues, but the question is whether I will have time, I am 29 years old, and I am working to extend my career as much as I can.”
“Yes, I would like to play in England and Spain, but I do not know if there is enough time left.”
United is ready for a defining week.
They have only five days to bring in recruits.
And then they will face Leicester in the opening game of the Premier League on Friday night.
