Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo will play for a Real Madrid veterans side in a charity match against Manchester United this summer.

The pair have been added to a list of former Madrid stars who will feature in the 'Legends Are Back' friendly against past United heroes at Old Trafford on June 2.

Steve McManaman, the former Liverpool and Manchester City player who twice win the Champions League with Madrid, is also confirmed along with - amongst others - Fernando Hierro, Fernando Redondo, Emilio Butragueno, Christian Karembeu and Ivan Helguera.

Former United players set to take part include Dwight Yorke, Andrew Cole, Denis Irwin, Lee Sharpe, Dion Dublin, Quinton Fortune, Edwin van der Sar, Jaap Stam, Teddy Sheringham and Nicky Butt.

The line-ups have been announced by the Manchester United Foundation, who are raising money for disadvantaged young people under their Red Heart United banner.
