2012 was Bessa's breakthrough year in the primavera, being a main reason for Inter winning the NextGen Series, scoring three goals in the tournament and having assisted Samuele Longo's goal in the final. Unfortunately, an eye injury made him unavailable for newly appointed first team coach, former primavera coach Andrea Stramaccioni. He was back in time for the Trofeo Giacinto Facchetti play offs. He suffered a knee injury in the final vs Lazio which kept him out for the rest of the year. In November 2012, Bessa's contract with Inter was renewed.
loan at Vicenza
On January 31, 2013 Bessa was loaned to Vicenza Calcio. He made his Serie B debut for Vicenza on March 9, 2013 in a match against Padova, coming on as a substitute. Having not played regularly for over half a year due to injury, an unfit Bessa didn't get many minutes for a relegation battling Vicenza side.

On January 22, 2014, Bessa started training with Eerste Divisie team Sparta Rotterdam. After having some injury problems, he finally made his Eerste Divisie debut on March 9, coming on as a sub in the 54th minute against Jong FC Twente.
loan at Bologna F.C.
On August 27, 2014, Bessa was loaned to Serie B side Bologna F.C. 1909. He made his debut as a 74th-minute substitute in the Serie B match against F.C. Crotone on 21 September. On December 13, 2014, he scored his first Serie B goal against Frosinone. On June 9, 2015, Bologna were promoted to Serie A, after a 1–1 draw with Pescara in the promotion playoffs. Bessa finished the season with 27 appearances, 1 goal and 3 assist, with 2 being from corners.

His playing style is similar to a very traditional playmaker and he has been compared to a both Wesley Sneijder and Xavi as he has abilities from both players. Bessa is technically gifted and excels at playing the no. 10 role. He has a low center of gravity but has the strength and ability to shield off defenders and protect the ball. With his eye for goal, he may alternate between a central attacking midfielder and a Wayne Rooney-type centre forward (second striker), playing “in the hole” in a 4-4-1-1, as he did in the NextGen series.
He has the ability to play deep and move up with the play as he dictates it, but also to be directly involved in the attack. Though, he is not known for his speed, his awareness and vision are his best qualities. He also has dribbling skills and the ability to completely control the play; qualities of a true playmaker.
