And although his 17 goals for West Brom have seen the striker linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, Lukaku played down talk of a transfer to Premier League rivals Tottenham.
Speaking to the Belgian football show Extra Time, Lukaku said: "I'll start the season with Chelsea. Then I will speak with management to discuss the best choice. I am a realist.
"I still need to grow and for that I need to have time to play during the next season.
"Departure to Tottenham? No this is not possible because it is a direct competitor to Chelsea.
"Departure to Germany? Schalke 04 and Dortmund? Dortmund would be a good choice, especially as the club can still win the Champions League."
