Júlio Regufe Alves (born 29 June 1991) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Rio Ave F.C. as a midfielder.
Born in Póvoa de Varzim, Alves played youth football with three clubs, finishing his formation with Rio Ave FC. In the 2010–11 season, he made his senior debuts with farm team G.D. Ribeirão in the third division.
In late January 2011, Alves was recalled by his parent club, making his Primeira Liga debut on 6 February by playing the last five minutes of a 0–1 away loss against FC Porto, which he had previously represented as a youth. He contributed with 239 minutes (three starts), as the Vila do Conde team retained its division status.
Alves was bought by Spanish side Atlético Madrid in July 2011. However, the following month, in the very last day of the summer transfer window, he moved teams – and countries – again, joining a host of compatriots at Beşiktaş JK, including manager Carlos Carvalhal.
On 24 August 2012, Alves signed for Sporting Clube de Portugal B on loan, playing the 2012–13 campaign in the second level. On 16 April of the following year, his contract was terminated for €200,000.
Alves then returned to Rio Ave, but a registration error meant that neither he nor Ângelo Meneses could take part in Nuno Espírito Santo's team.
Alves' older brothers, Geraldo and Bruno, are also footballers (both central defenders). The former played briefly for S.L. Benfica, also representing a host of other teams. The latter played with great individual and team success for Porto, also gaining more than 80 caps for the Portuguese national team.
