Return to MilanEdit
After impressive performances with Avellino in the 2014–15 season, Milan decided to bring him back to San Siro on 10 June 2015, where he signed new contract which will keep him at the club until 30 June 2019. Despite Ely being a free agent, Milan also paid an unknown party a €8 million fee.
On 30 January 2017, Ely joined La Liga club Deportivo Alavés on loan for the remainder of the season. He made his debut for the club on 11 March, replacing Ibai Gómez in a 2–1 away win against Málaga CF.
On 17 April 2017, Ely scored his first goal in the main category, netting his team's second in a 2–1 home win against Villarreal CF. On 21 July, he signed a permanent four-year deal with the Basque side.
