Former Manchester United goalkeeper Ricardo is attracting interest from Spain after being released by the English giants.

The 33-year-old left Old Trafford after three years in which he made just five starts under boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Even with the uncertainty surrounding the form of both Tim Howard and Roy Carroll, Ferguson never put his faith in the man with four caps for Spain.

Ricardo failed to justify the £1.5 million spent on his services from Real Valladolid, although clubs in his home country are now offering him the chance to resurrect his career.

Deportivo La Coruna and Getafe have both been linked with a move, with Depor searching for a new goalkeeper due to the likely departure of Jose Molina.

However some reports in Spain are suggesting that a move to managerless Getafe has been ruled out.

Ricardo is yet to decide where his future lies, with issues still to be resolved in England, although the player stated he is looking for the security of a long term contract.

"I am looking at the result of other questions in England and after I want to decide finally," said Ricardo.

"I don't want one year to show my quality."
