Celta Vigo coach Hristo Stoichkov is going back to former club Barcelona to help his promotion campaign.

After relegation last season, Stoichkov is determined that Celta bounce straight back into the Primera Liga and has contacted Barca about striker Maxi Lopez.

Also on Stoichkov's shopping list are Barca starlets Giovani dos Santos and Bojan Krkic. The Bulgarian great wants both teenagers on-loan and has guaranteed Barca they will see regular first team action.

Meanwhile, Maxi is reluctant to drop into the Segunda Liga and is demanding Barca give him a free transfer before the new season kicks off.
