Early years / Guimarães
Born in São Paulo, Geromel moved to Portugal from Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras along with Elias, signing with G.D. Chaves at only 18 and finishing his footballing formation there, after which he made his professional debuts in the 2004–05 season, with the northern club in the second division.
Geromel's performances there attracted the attention of Primeira Liga club Vitória SC. At Guimarães, after making his debut in a 0–2 derby home loss against S.C. Braga, he eventually became an undisputed first-choice, as the Minho team promoted from the second level and achieved qualification to the UEFA Champions League in just two seasons.
In an online voting, Geromel was considered as 2007–08's best player in the Portuguese League, beating FC Porto's Lisandro López and Lucho González. On 30 June 2008 he moved to Bundesliga side 1. FC Köln, recently promoted to the top division.
On 23 August 2012, Geromel signed a four-year loan deal with RCD Mallorca in Spain. In his first season he contributed with 29 starts and one goal (2,612 minutes of action), but the Balearic Islands club was relegated from the top flight; in December 2013 he rescinded his agreement and returned to his country, to sign for two years and a half with Grêmio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense while still owned by Köln.
