Born in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Carlos Eduardo played youth football for three clubs. He started his senior career with Desportivo Brasil, who loaned him several times for the duration of his contract; in the Série A he represented Fluminense Football Club and Grêmio Barueri Futebol, but only appeared in 24 games the two teams combined.
Carlos Eduardo moved to Portugal in January 2011, being loaned to G.D. Estoril Praia in the second division. He contributed with 23 matches and one goal in his first full season to help his team win the league and return to the top level after a seven-year absence.
Carlos Eduardo made his debut in the main category of Portuguese football on 17 August 2012, coming on as a 60th minute substitute in a 1–2 away loss against S.C. Olhanense. He totalled nearly 1,600 minutes of action – notably scoring twice in a 4–0 home win over C.D. Nacional – during the campaign as the Lisbon side overachieved for a final fifth position and qualified to the UEFA Europa League.
In the 2013 summer Carlos Eduardo signed with another Portuguese club, F.C. Porto, alternating between the main squad and the reserves in his first year. For 2014–15, he was loaned to France's OGC Nice.
