Ricardo has agreed terms with Osasuna on a two-year contract.
The Spanish shot-stopper was released by Manchester United and is keen to rebuild his career after a disappointing stint at Old Trafford.
After complaining about a lack of opportunities under Sir Alex Ferguson, the 33-year-old will compete with Juantxo Elia for the number one slot at Osasuna next term.
With Uefa Cup football to look forward to, Ricardo will be pleased to be heading back to his homeland after spending the season before last on loan at Racing Santander.
With Roy Carroll joining West Ham on Wednesday, Ricardo becomes the second United keeper to secure a move this week.
Osasuna have confirmed that Ricardo's arrival at the club will spell the end for Ricardo Sanzol in Navarra.
He was number one for the majority of last season but will not now have his contract, which expires at the end of the month, renewed.
