Club career

Born in Maceió, Alagoas, Maia joined Vitória's youth setup in 2003, aged ten, from CSA. He made his first team debut on 4 February 2010, coming on as a substitute in a 1–0 Campeonato Baiano home win against Feirense.

Maia's first goal came on 14 September 2011, in a 5–1 home routing of Duque de Caxias for the Série B championship. He was sparingly used during his beginnings at the club, however.

On 4 February 2013, Maia was loaned to fellow second tier club Joinville until December. His loan was cut short on 11 September, and he made his Série A debut with Vitória ten days later, in a 0–0 home draw against Grêmio.

On 12 February 2014, Maia was loaned to América-RN until the end of the campaign. He featured regularly for the club during the year, scoring a career-best seven goals in 36 appearances overall.

On 1 December 2014, Maia agreed to a one-year loan contract at Flamengo. Rarely used, he left the club the following 29 July and signed for Kawasaki Frontale, also in a temporary deal.

Maia returned to Vitória ahead of the 2016 season, but was loaned again on 12 May, now to Chapecoense. He scored his first goal in the top flight on 11 June, but in a 1–2 away loss against Ponte Preta.


On 28 November 2016, when Chapecoense were on route to the first leg of the 2016 Copa Sudamericana Finals to play against Atlético Nacional, Maia was among the fatalities of the LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 accident in the Colombian village of Cerro Gordo, La Unión, Antioquia.
