Castellanos joined NYCFC in 2018 on loan from Club Atlético Torque in Uruguay. He now turns to Europe to fulfill a childhood dream.
“Although it is difficult to leave this club, I firmly believe that now is the right time for me to move to Europe, which has always been a personal dream of mine. I feel confident and ready for a new challenge.”
