Rooney will play in a testimonial match for a Manchester United XI against a yet-to-be-named opponent at Old Trafford on August 3, 2016.

The 30-year-old has vowed to donate all the profits from the match to the NSPCC, Alder Hey Childrens' Hospital, Claire House Hospice, and the Man Utd Foundation through the Wayne Rooney foundation.

Rooney said: "The match is special for me and my family. I hope fans will come out in force and help raise as much money as possible for the charities."
