Club careerEdit

Castellani started his professional career with local Ferro Carril Oeste, competing in Primera B Nacional with the Buenos Aires outfit. On 2 January 2010 he moved to Spain and signed for Villarreal CF, being assigned to its B team in Segunda División;[1] he failed to make any appearances for the club during the season, due to the team's excessive number of foreign players.[2]

Castellani made his official debut for Villarreal B on 16 January 2011, starting in a 0–2 away loss against Recreativo de Huelva.[3] On 18 December he first appeared in La Liga with the main squad, replacing Cani in the 64th minute of a 1–2 defeat at CA Osasuna.[4]

On 6 July 2012, after both squads' relegation, Castellani joined Godoy Cruz in his native country.[5] Two years later he moved to Boca Juniors, also in the top division.[6]
