Manchester United are reportedly planning moves for Atletico Madrid duo Antoine Griezmann and Jan Oblak ahead of the summer transfer window.

Griezmann, 25, has been long linked with a move to Old Trafford after the club came to know of his £85m release clause.

On the other hand, goalkeeper Oblak has also emerged as a transfer target for United with David de Gea likely to push for a move to Real Madrid this summer.

According to The Star, the Red Devils are keeping tabs on the Atleti pairing and could lodge a combined £125m offer in order to pursue the players' services in the off-season.

Both Griezmann and Oblak have been part of Atletico's rise to the upper echelons of European football, and this could put United at a disadvantage, should they fail to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Manchester United can qualify for the elite competition via a top-four finish to the Premier League season or by lifting the Europe League title.
