He spent most of his career in Italy, but never competed in Serie A.
Born in Lisbon, Tavares was a product of Sporting Clube de Portugal's prolific youth system, but never appeared professionally for its first team, moving abroad in 2006 to join Italian side Genoa CFC, where he spent two uneventful seasons which included as much loans.
In July 2008, Tavares was signed by Frosinone Calcio (in a co-ownership deal) for €300,000. The Serie B club used the transfer credit of Salvatore Bocchetti who joined Genoa in June for €2.3 million, in the same predicament. In January 2010 he moved to lowly U.S. Pergocrema 1932, in another loan.
In late June 2010, Tavares was bought permanently by Fronisone along with Salvatore Aurelio, as part of Robert Gucher's deal. At that time half of the registration rights of the player were valued at €800,000, while Tavares was valued at €600,000 and Gucher at €1.3 million; moreover, Selim Ben Djemia's loan had cost Fronisone €100,000 and Gucher had cost Geona €200,000, which cleared any debts for both clubs.
Tavares only appeared in one fourth of the league matches during 2010–11 and only scored once, as his team ranked 22nd and last in the second level.
