Club career[edit]

Born in Laguna, Santa Catarina, Paulo Ricardo joined Santos' youth system in 2012, aged 18, after stints with Atlético Catarinense, Brusque and Figueirense. At the latter he also suffered with recurrent back injuries which included a vertebral fracture.[1]

On 21 March 2014 Paulo Ricardo signed a new deal with Peixe, running until 2017.[2] He made his first team debut on 18 July, coming on as a late substitute in a 2–0 home success against Palmeiras for the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A championship.[3]

On 26 April 2015, after Werley's illness and Gustavo Henrique's injury, Paulo Ricardo was made a starter in 2015 Campeonato Paulista final against Palmeiras, but was sent off after committing a penalty in a 0–1 away loss.[4] He appeared more regularly with the club during the campaign, being sometimes utilized as a defensive midfielder by manager Dorival Júnior.[5]

On 7 July 2016, Paulo Ricardo was loaned to FC Sion for one year.[6] He made his debut for the club on 10 August, starting in a 1–3 away loss against FC Lugano.

On 24 July 2017, Paulo Ricardo joined Sion permanently, with Santos receiving a compensation fee.[7] On 8 August of the following year, he returned to his homeland after agreeing to a one-year loan deal with Fluminense.[8]
