While he admits it may be unlikely, Rafael Nadal would like to be Real Madrid president.

Spanish 14-time grand slam champion Rafael Nadal revealed he would like to one day be Real Madrid president.

Although Nadal's uncle Miguel Angel Nadal is a former Barcelona defender, Rafael is a Madrid fan.

Nadal admits it may be unlikely, but the 30-year-old said being at the helm of the La Liga and European giants was a dream.

"If you ask me if I would like it, of course I would, why not?" he said, via El Mundo.

"But there is more to it... I think it will not be."

Madrid are flying high in La Liga, sitting a point clear of Barcelona despite having played two fewer games.

Nadal, who was the Australian Open runner-up last month, praised the work being done by current president Florentino Perez.

"We are very good as we are," he said.

"We have a great president right now and I don't think Real Madrid need me, but we never know what can happen in the future.

"It is not something I can raise today."
