On 19 July 2013, Thiago returned to his country, signing a four-year deal with Santos FC, for an undisclosed fee.[8]

In his presentation at his new club, Ribeiro said that "It is very good to come in a great club as Santos FC, with directors' trust. This is a factor that helps a lot, coming in a new club. Everything was right to come here, I am so glad and I hope to repay it playing, to help Santos to target them objectives."[9]
