The 27-year-old has joined Atleti on a five-year contract and is expected to go straight into the first-team ahead of the new season.
He has spent the past five seasons in Italy – where he has emerged as one of the most valuable players in the top flight.
De Paul started five of Argentina’s seven games in this summer’s Copa America and provided the assist for Angel di Maria’s winning goal in the final on Saturday against Brazil.
