Monterrey in Liga MX (MEX) since joining the club in 2015.

My goal is to come in and give 100 percent and help the team accumulate points and make a playoff push.”
Futbol Marketing Group CEO, Cris Barbosa said, “I am extremely content in the way Castillo kept his composure for the past 6 months. We were hoping for this move to happen earlier, but ultimately failed due to Colorado Rapids salary cap constraints at the time. Going into the season, expectations are set very high for Edgar. I have confidence that he will pull through and set the tone. In the end, this is not his first rodeo.”
