Fellow United team-mate Laurent Robert is also included in the squad, with the game to be played on August 18 in Rennes.
With France having endured a miserable European Championship in Portugal, both players will be keen to cement their places in a new-look squad.
In what will be a busy period for several of Sir Bobby Robson's outfit, Craig Bellamy has been called up for Wales' trip to Latvia, while fellow striker Patrick Kluivert will represent Holland in Sweden.
In other call-ups, Lewis Gray will meet up with the England Under-20 squad at a training camp in Leicestershire, with Stephen Brennan included in Republic of Ireland's Under-21 squad to face Bulgaria.
