European finance officials told Reuters that they have discussed various worst-case scenario tools such as limiting the size of withdrawals from ATM machines, imposing border checks and introducing capital controls in at least Greece should Athens decide to leave the euro.

Officials have been keen to stress that the discussions were more about being prepared for any eventuality as opposed to planning for something that will definitely happen. Thing is; if EU officials did think that Greece would be likely to exit the Euro would they let the public know now? Probably not.
