Born in São Paulo, Renato joined Corinthians' youth setup in 2001, aged 11. In February 2008, after impressing in the previous years' Copa São Paulo de Futebol Júnior, he was promoted to the main squad.
Renato made his first team – and Série A – debut on 10 May 2009, starting in a 0–1 home loss against Internacional. He scored his first goal as a professional late in the month, but in a 1–3 away loss against Santos.
On 16 August 2010 Renato was loaned to Bahia until the end of the year. After failing to adapt, he returned to his parent club only months later and moved to Figueirense in a one-year loan deal on 29 December. On 2 June 2011, after being rarely used, he moved to Série B side Portuguesa also in a temporary deal.
In February 2014, Renato refused to play with the under-23s in the year's Campeonato Paranaense, alleging he should be included in the first team squad. In July, after making only four appearances, he joined Náutico on loan until the end of the year.
After being regularly used, Renato joined Ponte Preta in December 2014, after his contract with Furacão expired. On 20 October 2015, after being a starter in the year's Brasileirão, he extended his contract for a further two years.
