Mourinho keen to finally give youngster his chance at the Bridge next campaign.
Chelsea have no plans whatsoever to allow in-form front man Romelu Lukaku to go out on loan once again next season, says the Sun.
The giant Belgium international has been at Stamford Bridge since arriving in west London from Belgium giants Anderlecht in July 2011 for a fee that could rise to as much as £17 million depending on the number of appearances that the striker makes for the Blues.
However, in the intervening two seasons the 20-year-old has made just eight Premier League appearances for the club, while overall Lukaku has played in only 12 games in all competitions for Chelsea, scoring no goals.
But the powerful attacker spent last campaign out on loan with West Bromwich Albion, where he proved himself to be a huge success at the Hawthorns, finding the back of the net on 17 occasions in just 35 top-flight fixtures for the Baggies, including a hat-trick on the final day of the season against champions Manchester United.
As a result, incoming Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho now plans to build his team around the muscular presence of Lukaku at the Bridge next season, with the player himself simply saying that he just wants to play as often as possible.
“I want to play as much as possible. I want to have a good World Cup so need to be ready,” said Lukaku.
“Chelsea? It depends on Mourinho, if he takes over, and what he has to say.”
