The midfielder was named United’s Under-21 Player of the Season in 2014-15 but failed to establish himself under former manager Louis van Gaal.
He spent Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge on loan at Granada, scoring five goals and registering three assists in La Liga.
And the 21-year-old wants to build on that campaign at United under Mourinho, whose man-management skills have impressed Pereira.
Asked if he would like another temporary stint away from Old Trafford, Pereira told the Press Association: “No, now I am focused at United.
On Mourinho, Pereira added: “He knows how to do things, he knows how to speak with players he knows how to treat the team.
“He always gets the results and always wins trophies. I think if you want to be the best manager in the world, you have to win trophies and that’s what he does.
“I was very happy [last season], I watched every game. The last game I even came to watch, the last Premier League game.

“I was very excited and, yeah, of course it is nice when United is winning back things and trophies. Hopefully we can kick on and win more trophies.”
