Manchester United must move quickly if they wish to bring Fredi Bobic back to England.
The sporting director is leaving Eintracht Frankfurt at the end of the season and BILD says he is interesting United, along with West Ham and Red Bull.
However, Bobic is in advanced talks to sign with Hertha Berlin, with a contract of 4-5 years on the table.
The former Bolton Wanderers striker, though, has fielded some 'interesting' counter enquiries, including from United.
United vce-chairman exec Ed Woodward is said to be seeking to make a first technical director's appointment some time this year.
