The European transfer window has one week left to run and it could still come to a spectacular end, with Paris Saint-Germain potentially facing the risk of having to choose between Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

On Thursday, the Club Financial Control Body of UEFA, European soccer's governing body, will deliver its verdict on whether PSG have breached Financial Fair Play regulations.

According to Spanish radio station Onda Cero, the French champions may have to sell Neymar or forfeit their deal to sign Mbappe from Monaco, should they be found guilty. The Ligue 1 side, which is owned by the Qatari royal family, broke the world's transfer record for Neymar last year and have already committed to pay $218 million and make Mbappe's loan move from Monaco permanent this summer.

Onda Cero believes Real Madrid are keeping an eye on the situation and would be more than happy to revive their interest in Neymar. On the other hand, it is perfectly possible—if not downright expected—that PSG will just be hit with a large fine or a transfer ban instead.

Spanish outlet Sport seems to expect PSG will be found not guilty and suggests they are ready to table a $104 million bid for Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

PSG are also looking at the Premier League for signings, given the transfer window in France closes at the end of the month. According to the London Evening Standard, the defending Ligue 1 champions have identified Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose as a candidate to bolster their defensive options.

Despite being linked with a move away from Spurs throughout the summer, Rose returned to the squad last weekend. However, he is understood to be open to leaving the club. Toby Alderweireld was also linked with a move away from Spurs, but is instead expected to stay at the club, according to ESPN.

However, talkSPORT adds the north Londoners are not planning to offer the two defenders a new deal.

Meanwhile, Spanish newspaper El Pais reports Harry Kane turned down the chance to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid this summer, while Mohamed Salah also had a similarly lukewarm response.

While the Egyptian will not leave Liverpool anytime soon, Divock Origi could be packing his bags. The Telegraph reports the Reds are happy to allow the Belgian to join Borussia Dortmund on a season-long loan, but only if the Bundesliga club agrees to include an obligation to buy in the deal.

Dortmund had enquired about the 23-year-old's availability earlier this summer but were put off by Liverpool's $34.7 million valuation.

Elsewhere, Manchester City could turn to Keylor Navas to replace Claudio Bravo after his season-ending injury. Spanish outlet AS reports the Premier League champions are considering the option of signing Navas on a season-long loan from Real Madrid, as the Costa Rican has fallen below Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order.
