Pop diva Madonna wants to own a nightspot and has been in negotiations to buy a stake in London's Aura Mayfair.

The pop superstar met with Malaysian entrepreneur Tony Fernandes to discuss buying a stake in his company, The Aura Group, which owns several nightspots, reported Daily Telegraph.

"Madonna sees it as a natural move. She has ambitious plans," said an associate of the 52-year-old singer.

The 'Material Girl' hit maker is a regular visitor to the exclusive club, which is owned by Fernandes, events and motorsport entrepreneur Jonny Dodge and Supper Club proprietor Alberto Barbieri, and is believed to be keen to put her own influence into the venue.

If Madonna does become a stakeholder in Aura she will be able to count her ex-husband Guy Ritchie as a business rival as he owns The Punchbowl pub in the exclusive area of the city.

The singer seems to be willing to expand her business empire, as she opened a gym, the Hard Candy Fitness centre, in Mexico City in November. She is expected to launch another 10 gyms across the globe, including in Argentina, Russia and Europe.
