I don't think he'll be in awe of anything Nadal has to offer this year. Murray is the more aggressive pusher nowadays and honestly has more weapons. I don't think Nadal's clay court tactic of sitting behind the baseline hitting looping forehands will work. He isn't fast enough anymore to play that style on faster courts.
On June 3rd, Nadal will receive the worst birthday present of his miserable life. His career ends Wednesday.
