22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal has said that he would love to become the president of Real Madrid one day, adding that while he does not meet the requirements yet, he would absolutely love to acquire the position.

Nadal, who hasn’t played tennis since the Australian Open in January earlier this year, spoke in an interview with Movistar +, where he shed light on a few aspects, including his wish to become Real Madrid president and the transfer of Kylian Mbappe.

“Do I want to be president of Real Madrid? I don’t have that dream but I would like to,” the tennis star was quoted by Mundo Deportivo

“But today we have the best possible president. Then, life takes many turns and you have to ask yourself if you are qualified for certain things. I think that I don’t meet the requirements to be one,” he added.

What is Madrid lacking?

The Roland Garros maestro also gave his opinion on Real Madrid’s pursuit of Kylian Mbappe. First, he said that maybe Madrid could have signed one more striker this summer.

He also added that Jude Bellingham has been a spectacular signing for the team.

“Maybe one more striker would be good, I also think that. A spectacular signing like Bellingham has been made,” he said about the current squad. 

About Mbappe, he said that he does not have any problem with the Frenchman because he decided to stay at Paris Saint-Germain while extending his contract until 2025. 

No problem with Mbappe

“Yes, I don’t have any problem with Mbappe. Quite the opposite. I’m happy for him. Of course, I like Mbappe. Who doesn’t like him?”

The tennis veteran also said that Mbappe has no obligation to come to Madrid as the team from the Spanish capital is bigger than any player in the world.

“What obligation did Mbappe have to come? Madrid is Madrid. Madrid is bigger than any player. That is the reality. He also has no obligation to come to Madrid when we Madrid fans want Mbappe to come,” he explained.

Jude Bellingham’s Euro 2024 campaign came to a heartbreaking end as England slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Spain in the final.

Bellingham was one of the better players for England in what was a hard-fought affair at the Olympiastadion. However, the Real Madrid star was not able to get his team over the line, with England conceding a late winner from Mikel Oyarzabal.

Bellingham was visibly disappointed at the result and was seen storming off the pitch and even kicking a drinks cooler in frustration.

Speaking to a press after the defeat, Bellingham expressed his thoughts, calling it a ‘heartbreaking result’.

“We all wanted nothing more than to make history and make people of England proud but we didn’t deliver. Going forward we will analyze it, it’s a young group,” he said (h/t Daily Mail).

Bellingham was indeed one of the more important players for an England side, which was criticised by many for their underwhelming performances

However, the Real Madrid star also looked at the positive. “It’s disappointing because we have to deliver at some point but there are things we can take from this,” he said.

“As a team, we will take the positives and negatives and we have to find a way to get it over the line,” the midfielder added.

While the defeat to Spain was certainly a blow for young Bellingham, the Englishman can hold his head up high, as he is coming on the back of a tremendous campaign that saw him secure the La Liga and the Champions League title.

For now, Bellingham will be looking forward to an extended summer break, before shifting his focus back to Real Madrid ahead of the new season.
