After his performances with the Colombian U-20 national team, Rentería was transferred to Sport Club Internacional in Brazil. There he showed his flair, usually coming off the bench to score goals in a series of pivotal situations, the first being one that earned a quarterfinal berth in the 2006 Libertadores Cup (which the club would eventually win), at Uruguay's Club Nacional de Football – he hit the ball over an oncoming defender's head with his right foot and first timed it past the goalkeeper with his left one; despite often playing backup to Rafael Sobis, who would then move to Real Betis, he became an important offensive element and a fan favourite, as he also engaged in energetic goal celebrations.
Rentería's form was, however, cut short by a series of nagging injuries that left him out of the side subsequently. In the 2007 January transfer window he signed for F.C. Porto in Portugal for R$7,457,400, but all of the fee belonged to a third-party owner; in reverse, International had to pay an additional commission to the football broker. Porto, on the other hand, re-sold 50% of its economic rights on any future transfer.
However, Rentería appeared rarely for the eventual champions (six matches, five as a substitute), and was sent on loan to RC Strasbourg seven months later. In spite of his nine Ligue 1 goals (squad best), the club finished second from the bottom, and he returned to Porto, being immediately loaned to fellow top flight outfit Sporting de Braga; he was an undisputed starter throughout his first and only campaign, often partnering Cameroonian Albert Meyong, and also netted three goals in the Minho club's UEFA Cup round-of-16 run.
Porto would loan Rentería again for 2009–10, as he moved to Clube Atlético Mineiro on 22 July 2009. However, in January 2010 he moved teams again – still loaned – returning for then league leaders Braga (eventually second).
In January 2011 Rentería returned to his country after a six-year absence, signing with Once Caldas from Manizales and scoring on a regular basis for the team. In June, however, he changed teams and countries again, joining Mexican outfit Cruz Azul for three years; however, just days after arriving at the club, he rescinded his contract after failing his medical.
