FAWSL Full-Time were informed of the transfer via an official club press release from Manchester City earlier today.
The 23-year-old will officially join The Cityzens on a free transfer on 1 July when her contract with current club Atlético Madrid expires.
Castellanos has spent the last two-and-a-half years with Atlético, scoring 23 goals in 58 appearances in all competitions. On the international stage, she is the captain of the Venezuelan national team and she has scored 12 goals in just 25 games at senior level.
After completing her move to The Academy Stadium, Castellanos said “I’m very happy to be a Manchester City player – it is a huge move for myself 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 that I can help Manchester City too.
“The style of football that the team play was very attractive to me and I feel as though I can fit in very well here, whilst also being challenged to develop and grow.
“I have chosen the number 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.”
Castellanos is Manchester City’s first signing of the summer.
