With a good performances on the youth team, he was promoted to direct professional, with the opportunity to train with São Paulo.

With his good performance in the juniors, the club signed him in the end, throwing him to the team working alvinegro for the 2010 season 2010.

On January 2013, Caio joined to Internacional and must be a substitute for Taison, because Colorado needs a speed forward since that the current player of FC Shakhtar Donetsk left the club, in 2010.[1]
