ESPN reports that Taty Castellanos could be sold for 15 million euros. The 24-year-old Argentine striker caught the eye when he scored 4 goals against Real Madrid in Girona’s 4-2 victory on the morning of April 26 in round 31 of La Liga this season. Taty Castellanos is a player on loan by Girona from New York City FC.
The American team can accept to sell Taty Castellanos outright if it receives a reasonable price. The player born in 1998 joined Girona on loan in the summer of 2022 with a term of one season. He has scored 11 goals in 29 appearances in La Liga season 2022/23.
Before going to Spain to play, the Argentinian player won the title of Top Scorer of the American Professional Championship (MLS) season 2021 with 19 goals. According to Marca, Taty Castellanos is the first Argentine player to score four goals against Real Madrid in a single La Liga game. This is an achievement that not even Lionel Messi has achieved.
City Football Group of the UAE owns shares in Man City as well as many other clubs including New York City FC, Melbourne City FC, Yokohama F. Marinos, Girona and Mumbai City FC. That’s why Castellanos easily had a chance to come to light in Europe.
In 2021, Man City coach Pep Guardiola gave a positive assessment of Castellanos after speaking to his scouting department: “I think he will make progress in Europe. When the scouts spoke to me, I knew he was a quality player. Let’s see”.
According to Goal, the Argentinian player is unlikely to join Man City because Pep currently has two talented strikers, Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez. But with the price of £ 15 million, Goal believes there will be many clubs asking to buy Taty Castellanos, especially after witnessing his performance against Real Madrid.
