LONDON -- Galatasaray's president says European clubs are in talks about launching a new continental competition that could replace UEFA's Champions League.
Unal Aysal said he is hoping a 20-team continental super league can launch after 2018 when UEFA's current agreement with the European Club Association expires.
Aysal says "it would be 20 big teams, with three to five teams changing every year. ... It is a concept that is under discussion for a few years."
However, he did not say which clubs have been involved in the talks, or how far they have progressed. The ECA says a new competition "was never discussed" by the 214-member organization.
Speaking at the Leaders in Football conference in London, Aysal said he has spoken with potential sponsors for the competition, including two "big brands."
