The 20-year-old striker signs for the Spanish outfit from Florida State University where she attracted worldwide attention after scoring 47 times in just 77 games.
“Thank you Atletico Femenino for the confidence. From now, focused and motivated to learn and grow in this new chapter.”
Atletico de Madrid Femenino is one of the powerhouses in women’s soccer and competes in the UEFA Champions League. It also plays in the top flight of Spanish football and has been crowned champion for the last three seasons.
“All of the Atletico family wishes you the best of luck in this new challenge that begins today, defending the red and white.”
Despite having not signed a professional contract before now, Castellanos has been a vital member of her national team.
She won two South American championships for Venezuela’s Under-17 side and shared the Golden Boot at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in 2014. She was then just 14.
She has since graduated to the senior squad in 2018, where she scored four goals in her team’s rout of Bolivia.
