The Dutch football association is targeting Louis van Gaal for a senior role.

Van Gaal parted ways with Netherlands as their head coach in 2014 after the World Cup to replace David Moyes as manager of Manchester United.

Van Gaal's current contract with United expires in 2017 but he's widely expected to be fired in favor of Jose Mourinho.

Netherlands have suffered a downturn in form since their showing at the 2014 World Cup, with the team missing out on qualification for Euro 2016.

Danny Blind is currently manager of the Netherlands and he's said he would welcome working with Van Gaal again.
