This is said in a Liverpool Echo release, which revealed that the Portuguese manager wants to stay in the Chinese Super League (CSL) rather than Shanghai's SIPG, rather than take over Everton.
Pereira told Sky Sports News he was "grateful" to be considered for the role, but was "still coach of SIPG and SIPG is a club close to my heart".
"Currently I am not in a position to make any other commitments. I can not decide now, I need time to think and plan my future looking at all the options I have".
"It promises to be a cracking game played in a derby atmosphere with opportunities at both ends, but I think United will keep the points". Shanghai SIPG defeated Hebei China Fortune 3-0.
Pereira won back-to-back Portuguese league titles with Porto between 2011-2013 and also won the CSL with the Shanghai club previous year.
