Valentín Castellanos was polled by the Argentine River Plate

Thanks to the 22 goals he scored for New York City FC during the last MLS season, the Argentine Valentin «Taty» Castellanos is tempted to continue his career in important clubs in Europe and South America, such as the River plate of his country.

Castellanos, 23, acknowledged this Tuesday that since River There have already been contacts with him and his representative to acquire his file as soon as possible. “A collaborator of (Marcelo) Gallant contacted me. To play in River and have Gallant DT’s cannot be ruled out. Obviously I said yes. I would make an economic effort for the sporty aspect ”, he admitted.

Faced with this possibility, the player was enthusiastic about wearing the shirt of the last Argentine soccer champion. «I do not close the doors to River, I really like how he’s playing. But it does not depend on me ”, warned the «Taty» Castellanos, in dialogue with the Argentine channel TyC Sports.

However, the scorer does not consider the latent possibility of emigrating to soccer in Brazil as a fall, more precisely to play in the Palmeiras.

«I know that Palmeiras he loves me but this one River You can’t say no to him ”, explained the footballer who, despite having been born in the province of Mendoza, Argentina, was trained in football at the University of Chile.

Although the interest of the current two-time champion of the Copa Libertadores de América is also an option to consider for Castellanos, the fact that River plate has been added as a possible destination makes its future uncertain.

«Now it depends on the clubs,» said the champion of the MLS Cup 2021 with the New York City FC, leaving everything in the hands of his agent and the directives of the teams that want to have their goalscoring quota.

Without the possibility of debuting at a professional level in the U from Chile, Castellanos was loaned to Montevideo City Torque Uruguayan in 2017. Then another loan would come to the New York City FC, who after the first season decided to buy his chip in 2019. And the scorer did not disappoint.
