The Holland FA will fight any interest from Chelsea in their coach Marco van Basten.
A spokeswoman for the Dutch FA said: "Mr Kessler will start talks about the renewal of a contract after the qualifying campaign.
"Yes, the Dutch FA would like to see him continue - that's what our chief executive has said a few times."
But the Dutch insisted Van Basten's trip to Manchester had been scheduled before Jose Mourinho's shock exit from Stamford Bridge last week.
The spokeswoman added: "The fact is Mr Van Basten was in Manchester only to have a meeting with Edwin van der Sar."
