CareerEdit

Rômulo was born in Inhaúmas-GO, Brazil.

After weeks of speculation, where it was thought that he might even go to Deportivo de La Coruña,[3] Cruzeiro produced a bid twice as high as Grêmio's for the player.[4] He did eventually move to Cruzeiro, but Cruzeiro later loaned him out to Beitar Jerusalem in August 2007 for one year.[5] Rômulo joined the French Ligue 2 club RC Strasbourg on a six-month loan from Cruzeiro, on 8 September 2009 Coritiba signed the forward on loan from Cruzeiro until December 2009. When the loan ended, he was transferred to Atlas of Mexico.[6] After spending six months in Mexico, he returned to his home country Brazil and joined Guarani. Then, he moved to Grêmio Prudente from Guarani in January 2011.[7] On 29 June 2011, Rômulo joined Belgian side Westerlo from Brasiliense, signing a one-year contract.[8] But after just over two months at Belgium side, he moved to Israeli club Ironi Nir Ramat HaSharon. In July 2013, he joined Maltese club Valletta on a one-year deal.[9]
