Club career[edit]

Born in São Paulo, Vitinho joined Palmeiras' youth setup in 2011. On 28 April 2016 he was promoted to the first team, signing a contract until 2021.[1]

Vitinho made his first team – and Série A – debut on 21 June 2016, coming on as a substitute for Cleiton Xavier in a 2–0 home win against América Mineiro.[2] However, he appeared in only one more match for the side during the year, again from the bench.

On 10 July 2017, after still being rarely used, Vitinho was loaned to FC Barcelona for one year, being assigned to the reserves in Segunda División;[3] the deal was made official the following day.[4]
