The veteran midfielder ended his illustrious career in Sunday's 5-5 draw at West Brom but has agreed to take part in a legends encounter with Real at Old Trafford on June 2.
A host of famous names from both clubs, including Zinedine Zidane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Jaap Stam and Teddy Sheringham, have already agreed to take part in the fixture, which will raise money on behalf of the Manchester United Foundation.
"Scholsey will love not just being on the pitch with Real Madrid, but with Zinedine Zidane," said United Legends manager Bryan Robson.
"In the past, he has said that Scholsey was the best midfield player in the world, so it will be nice for Paul to see him again and play against him and the rest of the Real Madrid players."
