On 13 July 2019, still owned by Valencia, Murillo signed with U.C. Sampdoria for an initial loan fee of €2 million and an obligation to buy for €13 million at the end of the season. On 15 January 2020, the Italian club bought out his rights and loaned him to RC Celta de Vigo until 30 June, with an option to purchase.

Murillo agreed to another loan at the Balaídos on 16 September 2020.
