MANCHESTER UNITED have agreed terms with Real Valladolid for goalkeeper Ricardo, who is arriving in England to seal a deal within the next 24 hours.
The Red Devils are handing the Spanish shot-stopper a three-year deal after agreeing a é¼2.25 million deal and the player has told planetfootball.com that he is delighted to be moving to Old Trafford.
"I will only believe this is happening when I have signed," said an excited Ricardo.
"They have been saying for two years that I will be leaving, but I am happy."
The player will undergo a medical on Friday as United look to complete a deal before the Champions League deadline.
Ricardo will add much needed competition at Old Trafford for the number one jersey and the 30-year-old will even hope to supersede Fabien Barthez as Sir Alex Ferguson's first choice.
