Headlines
Marco Silva has resigned from his post at the head of Hull City after failing to keep them in the Premier League. He had signed on in January to replace Mike Phelan, but only found six wins in 18 matches, leading the team to an 18th place finish.

Argentina have their new manager. Sevilla manager Jorge Sampaoli will leave his Spanish home to manage his home nation's national team after the Argentina Football Association reached an agreement with the club. Sampaoli's contract doesn't expire for another year, but, per the agreement, the AFA will activate his release clause for €1.5 million. Argentina have been without a manager since Edgardo Bauza was sacked earlier this year.

Portuguese international Bernardo Silva is joining Manchester City from Monaco for a price of £43 million. He scored 11 times and provide 12 assists for the French champions last year. Meanwhile, City defender Pablo Zabaleta is leaving the club and joining West Ham on a free transfer.

On the other side of Manchester, Ecuadorian full back Antonio Valencia has inked a contract extension that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2019. He played 43 games in all competitions for United this season and captained the side during their Europa League triumph on Wednesday.

Finally,the 2018 World Cup is being called out for its atrocious working conditions on stadium construction sites. Giani Infantino himself acknowledged the poor treatment of North Korean workers in Russia in a letter to The Guardian and The Times. Payment, health and safety conditions, and the usual working atrocities are all listed in another black mark for both the Russian hosts and FIFA, itself.
