Claro transferred to CFR Cluj of Romania in the 2007 summer, joining a host of compatriots and winning the Liga I title in his debut season, contributing with 15 matches. From 2009 to 2011 he amassed the bulk of his appearances, winning another national championship in the former campaign; he was released in June 2013 at the age of 36, but continued to compete in the country, first with ACS Poli Timișoara.
