Club careerEdit

Born in São João Nepomuceno, Minas Gerais, Iago represented Palmeiras as a youth before moving to Atibaia in 2012.[2] In 2014, he moved to Grêmio Barueri, and made his senior debut on 20 February of that year by coming on as a late substitute in a 0–1 Campeonato Paulista Série A2 away loss against Batatais.[3]

On 21 December 2015 Iago returned to his former club Atibaia.[4] He was an undisputed starter for the club during the Campeonato Paulista Série A3 championship, scoring six goals in 22 matches as his side reached the latter stages of the tournament.

On 22 June 2016, Iago signed a one-year loan deal with Série A side Coritiba, after impressing on a trial period.[5] He made his debut in the tournament a day later, replacing Walisson Maia in a 1–1 home draw against Internacional.[6]

Iago scored his first professional goal on 21 August 2016, netting the winner in a 2–1 home win against Santos.[7] Ten days later, he scored the game's only in a home success over Vitória, taking Coxa to the following round of the year's Copa Sudamericana.[8]

On 19 December 2016, Coritiba bought 50% of Iago's federative rights, and the player signed a contract until 2020.[9]
