Club career[edit]

Brazil[edit]

Born in Sousa, Paraíba, but raised in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Soares started his career with Palmeiras FC das Rocas.[1] After impressing with the side he moved to América Futebol Clube (RN) in 2009,[2] initially assigned to the youth setup.

Soares made his professional debut for the latter club on 14 August 2010, coming on as a substitute in a 1–2 Série B home loss against Vila Nova Futebol Clube.[3] He only appeared in one further match in the championship, before being released.

Soares subsequently represented Botafogo Futebol Clube (PB), Sousa Esporte Clube, Centro Sportivo Paraibano, Caicó EC,[4] Visão Celeste EC, Cerâmica Atlético Clube,[5] Treze Futebol Clube,[6] Veranópolis Esporte Clube Recreativo e Cultural,[7] Esporte Clube Pelotas[8] and Lucena SC.[9]

Nacional[edit]

On 27 January 2015, Soares moved abroad for the first time in his career after signing with Primeira Liga side C.D. Nacional, still owned by CSP.[10] He made his debut for the club on 21 February, replacing Lucas João in a 1–3 away loss against S.C. Braga.[11]

Soares scored his first goal abroad on 20 April 2015, netting the equalizer in a 1–1 Madeira derby at C.S. Marítimo.[12] The following 20 March, he scored a brace in a 3–2 home win over Vitória de Guimarães.[13]

Vitória Guimarães[edit]

On 25 May 2016, Soares signed for Vitória de Guimarães.[14] He made his debut for his new team on 14 August, starting in a 0–1 home loss to Braga, and scored his first goal 12 days later in a 5–3 win against F.C. Paços de Ferreira also at the Estádio D. Afonso Henriques, through a penalty.[15]

On 4 November 2016, Soares scored a double in a 2–1 home success over former club Nacional.[16] He finished his spell in Minho with 22 official appearances, and nine goals.

Porto[edit]

On 23 January 2017, Soares signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with FC Porto, with a 40 million clause.[17] His first game took place on 4 February, starting and netting twice in a 2–1 home win against Sporting Clube de Portugal.[18]

Soares made his UEFA Champions League debut on 22 February 2017, starting in a 0–2 home loss to Juventus F.C. for the round of 16.[19]
