Nicolas Castillo career history until 2020
This FM 2014 player profile of Nicolas Castillo shows a competitive complete forward, a striker that can cover any role in that position since he possesses a good combination of strength, speed and skills. Buying him at the start of the game is not an option though as Club Brugge have just poached him from Chile. In a season or two he should be available to buy for around 10 to 15 million, depending on the circumstances.
In my test save he did very well in Belgium, was sold to Wolfsburg in Germany and then made the big move to Manchester United where he contributed 24 goals in the last two seasons. He developed pretty well, his physical side is impressive as he has both strength and speed plus agility, while his heading and finishing are also good. He’s well worth adding to your shortlist at the start of the game.
