Gareth Bale is quickly becoming the main focus of this summer's transfer market. The Tottenham winger's displays have made him one of the most coveted players in the game.

With so many potential suitors for Bale's services, Tottenham stand to make a mint off his transfer. With the price for Bale rising with each passing match, only a few will be able to afford his services. This is where PSG come into play.

The Mirror is reporting that PSG have joined the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in the pursuit of the Welsh star. With clubs like these in the mix, the value of the bids will be enough to make everyone involved in Financial Fair Play cringe.

With their seemingly unending source of financial backing, PSG is in a good position to try to convince Bale to spend his prime years in Paris. PSG can try to sell Bale on their project to become a dominant force in Europe, but in today's game (to PSG's advantage) money does most of the talking.

Gareth Bale's complete game of skill, pace and finishing can fit into any system. He is a player with a very complete skill set that has potential to get better

The addition of Bale would give PSG two of the most dynamic young wide players in the game. A lineup with Bale running wild on the left and Lucas Moura rocketing past defenders on the right would be a nightmare for opposing sides. The effect on opportunities created for and by Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be huge. The pace of the PSG counter attack would be exciting to watch, too.

Adding Bale to the mix is a problem every club wants to deal with, but it does come with drawbacks beyond the financial considerations. The entrance of Bale would promote the exit of one or possibly two players. More than likely, Bale in a PSG jersey would put an end to Javier Pastore's time in Paris. With suitors in Italy, Pastore could be easily sold and the team could recoup part of the huge outlay spent on acquiring him.

As with all transfer rumblings in February, this is all speculation. However, it does give PSG fans something more to dream about and all of us another rumor to talk about.
