The 54 members of European football’s governing body Uefa will on Thursday meet in Switzerland on Thursday to discuss their support for Michel Platini for Fifa bid.
According to BBC Sports, several countries will drop their support for Michel Platini’s bid to become the next Fifa president if they do not get assurances over a £1.35m payment made to him by Sepp Blatter.
Outgoing Fifa boss Blatter is under criminal investigation over the 2011 payment, while Uefa president Platini has been questioned about it.
Blatter and Platini deny wrongdoing.
The absence of a written contract detailing the payment has caused several countries to reconsider backing Platini in February’s Fifa presidential elections.
Dutch, German and Danish officials have all gone on the record to say they will be seeking assurances over the payment at the meeting in Nyon.
The English Football Association has maintained its “unanimous” support for Platini, but added it was “following the ongoing investigation”.
Asked by BBC Sport about the payment and his future, before Thursday’s emergency meeting, Platini refused to comment.
Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan has officially submitted his candidature for the Fifa presidency, after insisting February’s election should proceed as planned.
