Club careerEdit

FlamengoEdit

Born in Itu, São Paulo, Ronaldo joined Flamengo's youth setup in 2013, from Paulista.[1] He made his first team – and Série A – debut on 1 November 2015, coming on as a late substitute for Jajá in a 2–0 away loss against Grêmio.[2]

On 19 April 2016, after impressing with the under-20s in the year's Copa São Paulo de Futebol Júnior, Ronaldo renewed his contract until 2020.[3] He was rarely used in the following two campaigns, and was loaned to fellow top tier side Atlético Goianiense on 5 September 2017, until the end of the year.[4]

Atlético Goianiense (loan)Edit

Ronaldo scored his first professional goal on 17 September 2017, netting his team's third in a 3–1 away win against Ponte Preta.[5] After contributing with one goal in nine appearances for Dragão, he returned to Fla ahead of the 2018 campaign, but again featured rarely.

Bahia (loan)Edit

On 9 July 2019 Ronaldo was loaned to Série A club Bahia through the end of the year.[6]
