Ligue Un Champions Paris St-Germain have made Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale one of their top summer transfer targets, according to reports. 

PSG are looking to make signings after yet again failing to progress past the last 16 of the Champions League. Their form in France also tailed off and they were beaten on penalties by Rennes in the French Cup Final.

Bale could be an option as a marquee signing for the Parisian side. His future at the Bernabeau is in doubt after the return of Zinedine Zidane earlier in the season.

Zidane is expected to have a clear-out if playing staff after a mediocre season by their standards and Bale could be one of those. His transfer fee could also help to fund a raft of acquisitions.

Bale is estimated to be worth about £70 million, which is nothing to the Qatari-backed club.

However, whether Bale wants to leave Madrid is not known.

Other clubs may also be in for the Welshman. Manchester United have been linked with him for a couple of years, and his former side Tottenham Hotspur could also be interested.
