Born in Agualva-Cacém, Lisbon to Guinea-Bissauan parents, Pelé started his career with local C.F. Os Belenenses. He made his first-team – and top division – debut on 11 January 2009, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 away win against Rio Ave FC.
Much more used in his first full season (seven starts, 642 minutes of action), Pelé's team would nonetheless suffer relegation, ranking second from bottom.
On 4 January 2011, after having been linked to the club in September 2010, Pelé was signed by Serie A team Genoa CFC, the deal being made effective in the summer. However, he only appeared for the under-20 reserves during his spell.
On 30 August 2011, Pelé was exchanged with A.C. Milan's Mario Sampirisi, both in co-ownership deal. He played as an overage player (only four players born in 1991 were allowed that season) for the club's B-team in his first year.
Pelé played twice in the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship qualification, in both games as a substitute, but was not selected for either the final tournament or the elite qualification phase.
He was then picked for a warm-up friendly before the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup, a 3–3 draw with France, and played all the matches in the finals in Colombia as the Portuguese under-20s finished in second position.
