Early years / Portugal
Bonfim started professionally with Grêmio Esportivo Inhumense. In January 2002 he signed a five-year contract with the club but, after just five games for the first team, he was successively loaned to Portuguese outfits: S.L. Benfica, C.F. Estrela da Amadora, Sporting de Braga and Vitória de Setúbal.
In the summer of 2008, Bonfim signed with FC Timişoara. In January of the following year, he had a brief loan spell with fellow Liga I outfit FC Gloria Buzău; upon his return, he became a first-team regular.
On 4 May 2011, Éder terminated contract with Steaua by mutual agreement. He left his following club, FK Khazar Lankaran in Azerbaijan, on 26 July 2013, following a 0–8 home defeat to Maccabi Haifa F.C. for the season's UEFA Europa League.
