Born in Lisbon, Mané joined local Sporting CP at age nine. On 9 December 2012, he made his senior debut, appearing with the B-team in a second division match against C.D. Aves after coming on as a substitute for Jorge Chula in the 78th minute of a 2–2 home draw. Exactly one month later, for the same competition, he scored his first professional goal, at C.F. Os Belenenses (1–2 loss).
Mané played his first match in the Primeira Liga with the Lions on 5 October 2013, entering the pitch in the dying minutes of a 4–0 home win over Vitória de Setúbal. His first goal in the competition arrived on 15 February of the following year, when he started and scored in the 1–0 defeat of S.C. Olhanense also at the Estádio José Alvalade.
Mané scored his first goal in the UEFA Champions League in only his third appearance in the competition, opening an eventual 3–1 group stage home win over NK Maribor on 25 November 2014 where he started and played 65 minutes. He played six games of the team's victorious run in the Taça de Portugal, netting the winner against F.C. Vizela in the fifth round and the equaliser away to C.D. Nacional in the first leg of the semi-final.
On 31 August 2016, Mané was loaned out to VfB Stuttgart until June 2018, with the German club having an option to buy. In his first match, he scored twice in the opening four minutes to help to a 4–0 home win over SpVgg Greuther Fürth, a new record for a debuting player in the German professional leagues; however, his overall stint at the Mercedes-Benz Arena was largely undermined by injury.
