Renan joined Spanish club Valencia on August 13, 2008.[2] He made his debut for Valencia CF in a 3–0 win against Real Mallorca. He has had a great start to his Valencia CF career and has been their number one keeper, but on January 20, 2009 he sustained a groin injury in a match against Athletic de Bilbao and was ruled out for six weeks, enabling veteran César Sánchez to step in. After recovering from his injury he remained on the bench till the end of the 2008–09 season owing to Cesar's fine form, and following the close season signing of Miguel Ángel Moyà from Real Mallorca the Brazilian faces an uncertain future at the Mestalla.


Xerez signed the Brazilian goalkeeper on loan from Valencia on July 27, 2009.[3]


Sport Club Internacional signed on June 4, 2010 the Brazilian goalkeeper on loan from Valencia.[4]
