The 31-year-old joined United from Valladolid in the summer of 2002 but has failed to make any real impression on the first team since his arrival.
Fabien Barthez, Roy Carroll and new boy Tim Howard are all above the Spaniard in the Old Trafford pecking order and he may now move back to Spain in order to secure regular first team football.
The keeper is keen to get back into the Spanish national side and he needs to be playing top-flight football to have any chance of winning a recall.
Atletico keeper German Burgos is currently struggling with injury and so Ricardo could claim the number one shirt if he does make the switch back to his homeland. However, he has also been linked with a move to La Liga new boys Murcia.
Meanwhile, the capital outfit are also closing in on Real Mallorca striker Alvaro Novo.
The 25-year-old is expected to put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal with the club early next week.
