Trippier, aged 28, was absent from the Spurs travelling party that left on a flight to Singapore earlier today to start their pre-season tour.
He has now passed a medical and put pen to paper on a three-year contract at the Wanda Metropolitano, where Tottenham lost the Champions League final last month.
The England international’s deal is worth £20m plus potential add-ons to Spurs, who signed him from Burnley in 2015.
He was under contract with the north London club until June 2020.
Trippier is now set to form part of a new-look back-four for Diego Simeone’s Atleti, who have already signed centre-back Felipe from Porto and left-back Renan Lodi from Brazilian club Athletico Paranaense. Right-back Juanfran has been released, while centre-back Diego Godin has joined Inter Milan.
