Club careerEdit

CorinthiansEdit

Born in Arujá, São Paulo, Ribeiro joined Corinthians' youth setup in 2001, aged ten, as a left back.[3] Promoted to the main squad in 2007 by manager Paulo César Carpegiani, he only appeared in four matches during that year, being relegated with the side.[4]

On 21 July 2008, after the arrival of Wellington Saci, Ribeiro was loaned to São Caetano,[5] being successfully converted to an attacking midfielder during his two-year spell at the side.

CoritibaEdit

Ribeiro returned to Timão in January 2011,[6] but was sold to Coritiba for a R$1.5 million fee on 21 February.[7] He made eight appearances as the team won the year's Campeonato Paranaense, scoring in the third minute on 17 April to open a 4–1 win at Roma Esporte Apucarana.[8]

The following season, Ribeiro scored five times in 15 games as the team defended their title. On 6 May 2012, in the first leg of the final away to rivals Clube Atlético Paranaense, he opened a 2–2 draw. A week later, he struck the decisive effort as his team won in a penalty shootout at the Estadio Major Antonio do Couto Pereira.[9]

Ribeiro finished the 2012 campaign for Coxa as the club's topscorer in Série A along with teammate Deivid, with eight goals. On 26 August 2012, Ribeiro was sent off in a 3–1 loss at Figueirense for a foul on Fernandes.[10]

CruzeiroEdit

On 8 January 2013, Cruzeiro reached an agreement with Coritiba for Ribeiro,[11] and he signed a four-year deal three days later.[12]

Ribeiro was a key attacking unit for Raposa during his two-year spell, along with Ricardo Goulart. He was also elected Série A's best player of the year twice in a row,[13][14] as his side was crowned champions twice.

Al-AhliEdit

After being linked to Manchester United, Milan,[15] Monaco and Real Madrid during the 2015 winter transfer window, Ribeiro moved to Al-Ahli Dubai on 2 February 2015 for a reported €15 million transfer fee.[16]

Two days later, he made his debut in the seasons's UAE Arabian Gulf League, opening a 2–0 home win over Al-Sharjah from Luis Jiménez's assist, a minute after replacing Habib Fardan.[17] He won his first silverware with the club on 27 March, coming on as a substitute at the end of the Super Cup 1–0 win over Al Ain at the Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. He finished the campaign with 3 goals in 12 league games. In the year's AFC Champions League, he struck 4 goals in 14 matches, including one in the semi-final second leg 4–3 aggregate victory over Al-Hilal;[18] the team lost the continental final by one goal to Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao.

On 19 August 2015, in the first game of the new national season, Ribeiro scored twice – including a penalty kick – in an 8–1 home win over Al-Fujairah, and assisted compatriot Lima for two more.[19] His team won the league, and Ribeiro told the media that the victory justified his surprise transfer to the team.[20]

FlamengoEdit

On 5 June 2017, an associate of Ribeiro said that he had rescinded his contract with Al Ahli in order to return to Brazilian football.[21] Later that day he signed with Flamengo, who paid €6 million for 100% of his economic rights, under a contract that runs until 2021.[22][23]

International careerEdit

After representing Brazil in the under-20 level, Ribeiro was called up to the main for two matches against Colombia and Ecuador by new manager Dunga on 19 August 2014.[24] He made his debut against the former on 5 September, coming on as a substitute for Willian in a 1–0 win at Sun Life Stadium, Miami.[25]

On 5 May 2015, Ribeiro was called up for the year's Copa América, held in Chile.[26] In the quarter-final against Paraguay, he replaced goalscorer Robinho for the final three minutes of a 1–1 draw, and then missed in the penalty shootout which eliminated Brazil.[27]
