Earlier this month, Fredi Bobic confirmed that he will be leaving his position as Eintracht Frankfurt board member this summer.


According to Sport Bild, he has now agreed a deal in principle to become the new Hertha BSC sporting managing director, succeeding Michael Preetz, who was dismissed in January.

Bobic and Hertha are understood to have agreed a four-year contract that will see him make €3.2 million per year – more than any other manager in German football and twice as much as he's currently paid at Frankfurt.

The 49-year-old took over his current job at Eintracht in 2016.
