salardinho best way is to play for a team in Euro qualifying. That means teams that finished 3rd-6th spot in league. This guarantees you 6 more matches to develope and at least 6 more if you end up in the CL. Also a long run in the league cup helps. Just maintain a 6.2 avg rating and a Euro team should come after you. Keep changing teams if your team doesn't make Euro and you should get 2-3 extra stat points per season. Also focus on 2-3 strength bars instead of building all of them.
