Coach Fabian Bustos is interested in signing right-back Byron Castillo from Barcelona de Guayaquil, the club he used to work for. The Argentine coach had already asked Santos for the player’s arrival.
Byron Castillo is a right-back, but he also plays on the right wing and Fabian Bustos is delighted with his versatility. Initial values are considered high by Santos, but the club is trying to negotiate.

Castillo is 23 years old, has been called up to the Ecuadorean national team and was named best center player by CONMEBOL, as he was among the 11 “perfect” holders of the 2021 Libertadores.
By the way, he was the only one who was not from a Brazilian team in the selection of the tournament. All the rest were from Atletico MG, Flamengo and Palmeiras.
In the Ecuadorean national team, the player played six matches, with one pass and without goals. The team is ranked third in the World Cup qualifiers. The location for the World Cup in Qatar is very close to being confirmed.
The side also came to the attention of Fluminense in December, but negotiations did not progress. Cariocas came to get information about the athlete, but stopped when they found out the values \u200b\u200babout 2.2 million US dollars.
