FC Dallas’ hopes of winning MLS Cup are about to take a major hit.

Colombian attacker Fabian Castillo is ready to further his career beyond Major League Soccer, according to Goal.com, and is on the verge of a $3-4 million switch to Turkish side Trabzonspor.

Thrice capped for his national team, Castillo has been dynamite for Dallas. He has five goals and five assists in 22 appearances this season, and scored a combined 19 goals in the previous two seasons.

Trabzonspor finished 12th in last year’s Turkish Super Lig. But they represented the league as its UEFA Champions League contender as recently as 2011-12, after finishing second in the league (Fenerbahce was banned from the UCL for corruption). Karadeniz Fırtınası is the 59th ranked team in UEFA.

FC Dallas manager Oscar Pareja is a strong manager, but it will take everything he has to keep the club atop the Western Conference. With stingy Colorado on the docket today, let’s see if Castillo is in the lineup.
