Man City has signed Deyna Castellanos on a three-year deal from Atletico Madrid. She will wear the No 10 shirt after completing the move once her contract with the Spanish club expires on July 1. She has scored 23 goals in 58 appearances and has won the 2021 Spanish Super Cup. She has also scored 12 goals in her 25 appearances for Venezuela.
“It feels great to be part of this team. I’m very excited to start the league and pre-season, and train with my teammates and the coaching staff. I’m excited to have a new chapter in my life and in my career,” new Man City signing Deyna Castellanos said. “It is a huge move in my career and I can’t wait for it to begin. Looking around at all the facilities here, it is just amazing – I believe that this club will help to improve me as a player, and I hope I can help Manchester City too.”
“The style of football that the team played was very attractive to me, and I feel as though I can fit in very well here, while also being challenged to develop and grow,” she added. “I have chosen the No 10 shirt too as I played with that number in college and scored some great goals wearing it, so hopefully I will be able to create many more good memories with it here at City.”
“We’re thrilled to have Deyna on board – she is a player we have admired for a long time and we’re so pleased that we have been able to finally bring her to the club,” Man City head coach Gareth Taylor said. “She is an incredibly exciting player and her inclusion in the FIFA Best shortlist at just 18 speaks volumes about her impact on the game at such a young age and what a talent she is.”
