The Belgium international admits he is yet to hold talks with new Blues boss but insists he wants to play regular football and does not want to sit on the bench
The Belgian spent last season on loan at Werder Bremen, scoring 10 times in 32 league appearances during a hugely successful spell in Germany which has caught the attention of the Bundesliga giants.
However, De Bruyne admits he is unsure where his future lies and has not spoken to Mourinho yet, although he is expecting talks in the near future.
"[I haven't spoken to Mourinho] yet, but I think the time will come," he told Sky Sports.
"The season is over now. We will see what happens."
De Bruyne also added that with competition for places at national level hotting up ahead of next summer's World Cup, he will not be content with a bit-part role.
"The most important thing for me is to play games," he added.
"I know that I will be stressed when I play a few games on the bench.
"I always try to give my best for the team and I've had a great season, but also next season I need to play a lot of games. With the point of the World Cup, it's very important."
