Club careerEdit

SantosEdit

Born in Carmópolis, Sergipe, Victor Andrade joined Vitória's youth setup in 2005, aged 10. A year later he moved to Benfica in a trial basis, remaining in the club for a couple of months and appearing in youth tournaments with the Lisbon club. Due to his age, however, he returned to Brazil and signed for Santos in 2007.[1]

In October 2011 he signed a three-year deal with Santos, with a buyout clause set at €50 million.[2] Touted as a next Neymar by the media,[3] he made his professional – and Série A – debut for Santos on 6 June 2012, aged only 16, replacing Alan Kardec in a 1–1 home draw against Fluminense.[4] He went on to score 3 goals in 19 matches in his first season, most notably in a 2–0 home success against Cruzeiro where scored the first and assist another, receiving praise from Muricy Ramalho and Neymar for his performance.[5]

BenficaEdit

Andrade appeared rarely in the following campaigns, and opted not to renew his contract with Santos.[6] On 11 July 2014, he returned to Benfica, the incumbent title holders, penning a six-year contract and being assigned to the reserves in Segunda Liga.[7] He made his debut on 17 September 2014, replacing Gonçalo Guedes on the 87th minute in a 2–2 home draw with Atlético CP.[8] He scored his first goal on 5 October 2014, netting his side's second in a 2–2 away draw against Feirense,[9] and ended the season with 32 appearances and four goals, including one to Porto B on 17 May 2015.[10][11]

In 2015–16, Andrade remained assigned to Benfica B;[12] until he received a call-up by Rui Vitória for the match against Estoril on 16 August.[13] He made his debut for the first team against them and assisted Jonas for the 3–0 and also took part in the fourth goal, scored by Nélson Semedo.[14] He played again against Arouca,[15] and Moreirense,[16] but was soon dropped again to the reserve team, as Rui Vitória favoured Gonçalo Guedes for his position.[17] On 31 October, Benfica disclosed on their annual financial report, that Andrade had cost €3.94 million, mostly on agent fees.[18] On 1 February 2016, he joined Vitória de Guimarães on loan until the end of the season.[19] Five days later, he made his debut with Guimarães,[20] and on 20 March, started his first game for them.[21] In April, he was briefly assigned to Vitória Guimarães B.[22] In June 2016, Andrade went on his second loan spell, joining German club 1860 Munich on a season-long deal.[23] On 27 October, he sustained a cruciate ligament rupture to his left knee and was sidelined for six months.[24] He was only fit to play again in May 2017.[25]

EstorilEdit

On 29 August 2017, Andrade moved to Estoril, penning a three-year deal.[26] A year later, he returned to Brazil to play for Chapecoense, on a one-year loan deal.[27]
