MADRID – England right back Kieran Trippier has signed for Atletico Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur, the two clubs said on Wednesday.
Atletico did not say how much they will pay for Trippier, 28, although British media reported the deal was worth £20 million plus variables.
Trippier played a leading role in England’s run to the last-four of the 2018 World Cup, scoring from a free kick in their 2-1 semi-final defeat by Croatia.
He also helped Spurs to the Champions League final for the first time in their history last season, where they were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in Atletico’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
“With this signing, we add to our team a fantastic and experienced player who comes to us from the Champions League runners-up,” Atletico said in a statement on their website.
