After his performances with under-20s, 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 edition of the 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.
Rentería's form was, however, cut short by a series of 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 side S.C. Braga; he was an undisputed starter throughout his first and only campaign, often partnering Albert Meyong, and also netted three goals in the Minho team's round-of-16 run in the UEFA Cup.
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 to league leaders Braga who would eventually finish 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he changed clubs and countries again, joining Mexico's Cruz Azul for three years; however, just days after arriving, he rescinded his contract after failing his medical.
