The son of a Brazilian who played for a host of Portuguese clubs such as Clube Desportivo de Beja, Portimonense S.C. and S.C. Olhanense, Targino started his professional career in 2004 with Vitória de Guimarães, having joined its youth academy three years before. He made his first division debut on 12 December 2004, appearing in a 1–3 away loss against F.C. Penafiel, and finished his debut season with two first-team goals, notably in a 1–0 home win over S.C. Beira-Mar, scoring in the 90th minute.
In January 2008, Targino was loaned to Turkish League's Manisaspor. He had started the campaign with Vitória, netting in a 1–0 home success against C.D. Nacional on 17 September 2007, but received relatively little playing time.
After the season's end, Targino was again loaned, joining Danish top division side Randers FC. He made his team debut against Brøndby IF as a late substitute in a 3–0 away win, again coming from the bench in the next game, with FC Nordsjælland. After teammate Mikkel Beckmann was injured against FC Midtjylland, he featured in the starting lineup the following three matches, as a right winger; he scored his only league goal in a 2–0 away success, also against Midtjylland.
Targino returned to Guimarães for 2009–10 but, midway through the campaign, suffered a serious cruciate ligament injury which put him out of action for nearly one year. On 8 November 2010, in his second game after returning, he came from the bench and scored twice to help his team come from behind to win it 3–2 at Sporting Clube de Portugal, the Minho club's first win in Lisbon in 14 years.
