Beckham was among the players to win the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup
In defence both Phil and Gary Neville will combine with Denis Irwin and Jaap Stam playing in front of legendary goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel.
The game will be played 20 years to the day that United won the Champions League at the Nou Camp against Bayern, adding to the Premier League and FA Cup titles.
The Manchester United Foundation will use the funds from the match to work with young people across Greater Manchester.
United’s treble-winning season in 1998/99 is their most iconic in the club’s history and no doubt supporters will turn up in their droves to see the legends and have a dose of nostalgia.
