Both the players currently coming back from Brazil as Spain have knocked out from the group stages of the World Cup.
Juanfran was targeted by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger as a replacement of Bacary Sagna who joined Manchester City on a free transfer few weeks ago.
Both the players have signed a long term deal, reports revealed that Koke has signed a four year deal while Juanfran has signed a five year deal. Arsenal and United now will have to look for other options.
Last season, Koke and Juanfran helped Atletico to win their first La Liga titles after 18 years and have revealed their happiness on signing the new contract.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are still searching for players in the market, and Manchester United are very close in signing Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.
