† Appearances (Goals).
Michel was born in Rio de Janeiro. He began his career in Soft Lazer (a futsal academy), and joined Botafogo's youth setup in 1997, aged seven. After playing for Bota's futsal club, he joined the football team as a right winger, but was reconverted to full-back in the proccess.
Michel made his debut for the Andalusians on 16 November, in a 2–1 home win against RCD Mallorca, after came off the bench to replace Juanma Ortiz in the 87th minute. His first start came on 10 May of the following year, in a 3–1 success against Sporting de Gijón also at the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos; it were his two only appearances of the campaign, which the rojiblancos eventually finished 11th.
On 20 September, Michel scored his first goal as a professional, netting the winner against Getafe CF. He was an undisputed starter during the following two seasons, but was later challenged by new signing Rafita in 2011–12, with the latter appearing in 35 matches while the former only appeared in 22, and was subsequently loaned to Atlético Mineiro in the summer.
Atlético Mineiro (loan)
Michel only made his league debut almost a year later, in a 0-1 away defeat against Santos FC on 13 June 2013; late in the month, the deal was renewed for another year. He finished the campaign with 16 appearances, including 72 minutes in the Copa Libertadores Final, a 2–0 home win against Olimpia, but acted mainly as a backup to Marcos Rocha.
Return to Almería
On 23 August 2014 Michel played his first match after his return, starting in a 1–1 home draw against RCD Espanyol.
