SERIE A Brescia are reported to be keen to bring Paul Ince back to Italy, if the former England international finds himself frozen out by new Middlesbrough manager Steve McClaren.

Ince has a fine reputation in Italy after two years with Internazionale - and indeed the Milan club's president Massimo Moratti suggested last year that the door was always open for the tigerish midfielder.

The 33-year-old, along with Manchester United's transfer-listed South African Quinton Fortune, are reported by the Daily Mail to be heading up Brescia's wanted list.

It remains to be seen what role Ince will play under McClaren - who is rumoured to be moving closer to the signings of youngsters Mark Wilson and Jonathan Greening from Manchester United - however the possibility of a return to Italy can certainly not be ignored.

Brescia have had one of their most successful seasons in the top flight - with the mercurial ability of the legendary Roberto Baggio playing a key part in the side finishing in eighth position in Serie A.

Baggio did spend the two years of Ince's Italian adventure in close proximity to the ex-Manchester United man, with the 'divine ponytail' playing across the city for Milan at the time.
