^^ Did this article have a Concept mission for Uranus/Neptune ?

Kinda. The last paragraph of the article entitled "Return to the Ice Giants" suggested Uranus and Neptune and their moons provide "rich targets" for future orbiting spacecraft. Launch opportunities for Uranus and Neptune occur "around 2030, leading to encounters around 2040". Uranus in particular "presents a timely opportunity" in that by 2050 a spacecraft still in orbit can view portions of Uranus and its moons not seen during the Voyager flyby.

A summary presentation concerning the 2014-2019 Hubble OPAL observations concerning Uranus and Neptune may be found here. https://core.ac.uk/download/pdf/288485751.pdf
Polar haze brightening and small storms continue on Uranus and observations of the occurrence and evolution of dark vortices on Neptune are highlighted. A six year orbital mission of Neptune is suggested for up close observations of a dark vortex.
The authors propose continued Hubble observations of Uranus and Neptune in 2020. https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2020hst.....16266S/abstract
