The 20-year-old Belgium international hopes a good pre-season, including this week's match with Singha All-Stars in Bangkok, will ensure he is part of Mourinho's thoughts for the forthcoming campaign, rather than spend another term out on loan.
Lukaku told Sky Sports News. "We had a good talk and now it's up to me.
"My mind is in Chelsea now and I have come back to do well in pre-season and if I do a good pre-season, I think I will have a place in the squad and hopefully in the starting XI.
"Last year I had a great season at West Brom and I think have the qualities to do it here, but it is up to me.
"If I don't do well here, then loan again."
