After his success in Japan, Borges was hired by São Paulo in 2007. In the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A that year, he was one of three top scorers of São Paulo with 7 goals.

Grêmio[edit]

Many speculations have arisen about his future after the break from the Borges Sao Paulo. Some Brazilian teams probed the player for months, even before the end of the season. The most likely destination was always the Guild. And that's what happened. The player was presented by the Guild on January 5, 2010 along with Leandro, William and Maurice. The player has trained with the group and traveled with the delegation towards pre-season in the city of Bento Gonçalves, Rio Grande do Sul in the mountains. Debuted for Gremio in the first round of the 2010 Campeonato Gaúcho in the game against Pelotas, Estádio Boca do Lobo in Pelotas. It began as the holder of the attack, along with former teammate Leandro Sao Paulo. The game ended 3-2 to the Guild, and Borges scored the tie of the tricolor when the match was 2-1 to Pelotas. The other goals were Jonas (penalty) and Maylson.

At the premiere of Gremio in Brazil Cup 2010, against the Araguaia Atlético Clube, Borges scored two goals, being decisive for the classification of the Guild to advance the next phase. His first goal in Grenal occurred on April 25, 2010, valid for the 1st game of the finals of the Gaucho, 2010. He has played a Grenal for Gremio in the first round of the Cup Fernando Carvalho (1st round of the Gaucho ) but did not score. His goal was the second victory in the Tri 2-0 at Estádio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre.
