Paris Saint-Germain have been linked to several major transfer targets ahead of the summer transfer market, but financial fair-play looks set to limit their spending.

Subsequently, the reigning French champions look set to be forced to choose who to recruit this summer, and will be unable to sign all of the targets they are keen on buying.
Le 10 Sport speculate that PSG will have to choose whether they move for Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria, Juventus striker Carlos Tevez and Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.
Last summer, the club were able to splash almost €50 million on Chelsea defender David Luiz, and while he has proved to be a valuable addition, such a lavish outlay looks unlikely this summer.
They were unable to snare Di Maria when he left Real Madrid in 2014, missing out to United, but may well look to return for the South American this summer.
The former Benfica star has endured a tough season under Louis van Gaal, coming in for criticism from some portions of the club’s fans, despite contributing ten assists during the campaign.
The Argentina star has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich [Foot Mercato], while PSG have also been linked with another move for the midfielder.
However, should Laurent Blanc succeed in signing the United man, they may not have enough funds left over to bring Kevin De Bruyne to the Parc des Princes.
The Belgian playmaker managed 20 assists and 10 goals for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga last term, helping the side back to the Champions League, and would arguably be a better bet for the French giants.
It’s worth noting that heavyweights such as Manchester City have been linked for the former Chelsea midfielder, and there are no guarantees that Paris would snare their man should the Citizens offer a route back to Premier League football [Daily Mail].
Finally, Carlos Tevez has also been mooted as a possible addition for PSG. The Argentine striker has been linked heavily with a move away from Juventus, with speculation intensifying since the arrival of Paulo Dybala [Il Corriere della Sera via Soccer News].
Atletico Madrid [ESPN] and Liverpool [Express] are just two sides rumoured to be keen on the ex-Manchester United striker, while a return back to Boca Juniors also appears to be a possibility [Express].
It looks unlikely that PSG will be able to recruit all three of their key transfer targets, and may well be forced to choose. If so, who should the French giants opt for?
