Castán signed for the Swedish club Helsingborgs IF in the summer of 2007 from Brazil's Atlético Mineiro. He made his Allsvenskan debut on 24 September 2007 in a match against Örebro SK, which Helsingborg lost 4–3.
In the 2012–13 season, he was signed by Roma for a transfer fee of €5.5 million from Corinthians. He earned a place in the starting XI thanks to a number of consecutive solid performances. He scored his first goal for Roma on 8 December 2012 in a 4–2 win over Fiorentina.
In 2013-14 Season, Castán improved a lot his performances for AS Roma, being an important defender in a team who just suffered 19 goals in 34 games. According Castán, Rudi Garcia's coming was important to this, "trusting in players who, in last season, could not play for club. He trusted in us and showed the quality of this staff. He is a coach who wants to do everything right, and We will go with him until the end."
Even living a great moment playing for AS Roma in 2014 (a club who suffered just 19 goals in 34 games of Italian League), Castán does not believe that he will call up by Scolari to play 2014 FIFA World Cup because of Dante, also a left foot defender, already being on the list. For Castán, Scolari will not call up two left foot defenders.
