UEFA president Michel Platini has been asked by the ‘majority’ of word football leaders to run for the FIFA presidency.
Platini received support during late-night talks in a Zurich hotel on Sunday night.
Frenchman Platini has yet to decide whether to run for presidency.
Platini would receive at least 115 votes, should he decide to stand.
A winning president needs 105 votes out of 209 associations.
Blatter is expected to hold a news conference at 1pm.
