Club career

Born in Palma, Majorca, Balearic Islands, Nadal made his official debut for Villarreal CF against CA Osasuna, on 2 February 2003. On 15 June, playing at RCD Espanyol in a 2–2 draw, he became the youngest player ever to score in a La Liga match, aged 16 years, 11 months and 18 days; he also appeared in four UEFA Cup and one Champions League games for the club.

However, Nadal was not used very often at Villarreal, and served Segunda División loans to CD Numancia and Real Murcia in the second halves of 2003–04 and 2004–05, respectively. He spent the entire 2006–07 season at Hércules CF in the same level, and only amassed 31 league appearances between the three teams combined.

In January 2008, Nadal lost all ties to Villarreal and joined newly created side Granada 74 CF, in division two. Upon their relegation he moved again, signing a two-year contract with Levante UD.

Although rarely a starter in 2009–10, Nadal contributed with two goals in 32 matches as the Valencians returned to the top division after a two-year absence. In the subsequent top flight campaign, in which he was used almost exclusively as a winger, he went scoreless in 25 games in an eventual escape from relegation; on 15 May 2011 he was sent off for a late challenge on Roberto Soldado in a 0–0 away draw against Valencia CF, which certified the team's permanence.

On 11 September 2011, 25-year-old Nadal signed a short-term contract with Alqueries CF in the Valencian regional divisions.

International career

Nadal was part of Spain's under-17 squad which finished as runner-up at the 2003 UEFA European Championship. In the same year he also played in the category's FIFA World Cup, with the nation losing in the final to Brazil.
