European soccer's governing body UEFA is discussing a possible change in the format of its club competitions, president Michel Platini said.
Asked if there was a plan to scrap the Europa League in favour of a 64-club Champions League, Platini said: "There is a debate to determine what form the European competitions will have between 2015 and 2018.
"We are discussing it, we will make a decision in 2014. There is nothing decided yet."
Platini also left the door ajar for video refereeing to rule on offside decisions.
"There is a complicated thing for which we might, and I say might, need video, it's offside. Because it is very difficult for the referees to rule on that," the Frenchman said.
