Some players could also be leaving during this transfer window having seen likes of Rose, Vincent Jassen and Georges-kevin Nkoudou left out of the squad that travel to Singapore for their pre season tour

The English defender will now replace Juanfran who was released by the Spanish giants in a three-year contract signed with Diego Simeone’s side. Trippier becomes the sixth signing of Atletico Madrid in this summer transfer window.
