Nadal is aiming to play a full schedule despite his rival Federer sitting out the whole clay court season for the second year in a row.
Federer's decision led to him winning Wimbledon last year before victory at the Australian Open this year.
But Nadal said: "There are tournaments that I can't imagine missing on purpose.
"I don't see myself missing Monte Carlo on purpose. I don't see myself missing Wimbledon on purpose, or the U.S. Open, or Australian, or Rome."
