Former Tottenham director of football Damien Comolli expects Paris Saint-Germain to do 'everything in their power' to sign Gareth Bale, should the Welshman be placed on the transfer market by his current employers.

Bale has established himself as one of the most coveted players in Europe after a sensational run of for this season, and the Tottenham winger has been linked with a transfer to the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester City.

Real Madrid would appear to be frontrunners to sign Bale, who has scored 21 goals in all competitions this season, although the financial clout of PSG surely makes the nouveau-riche French club one of the top contenders for his signature.

Comolli, who worked as Tottenham's chief of recruitment for three years, signed Bale when the Wales international was a teenage prodigy with Southampton, and senses the player is destined to join one of the continent's most prominent clubs.

The Frenchman ranks PSG among Europe's elite given their rise to prominence in recent years, and envisages the Ligue 1 leaders doing all they can to bring Bale to Paris, when Spurs eventually decide to cash-in on their star player.

"When you leave Tottenham and you are a player like Bale, there are only three or four clubs you can go to," Comolli told The Sun.

"If PSG know the player is on the market — and there is a possibility — it wouldn’t surprise me if they did everything in their power to get him."
