According to John E. Rojas, the Colorado Rapids are in advanced talks with C.F. Monterrey to keep leftback Edgar Castillo.

Castillo played for Liga MX side Monterrey from 2015 to 2017 and joined the Rapids this year on a one-year loan with an option to buy at the end of the 2018 season. From the moment Castillo first stepped on the pitch in burgundy, he’s made an impact on the team. He has two goals and three assists so far this year, and both of his goals were up for MLS Goal of the Week.

His pace and work rate are ridiculous and his crosses are almost always on point. His touch and technical ability on the ball are something we don’t often see around here, and while he may be 31 years old, he doesn’t appear to be slowing down yet.

The article also says a source told Rojas that the club is looking to sign Castillo to a multi-year deal. Castillo’s agent was at the game last weekend, which is another indicator that something is in the works.

Castillo has consistently been a bright spot during the darkest of moments in this season, and I think I speak for us all when I say we’d love for this to work out and him to stay with the Rapids.
