    to move across town

    Hi,
    Regarding the phrase below:

    Anyway, I brought Tévez on at half-time and just felt he was playing for himself a bit. From what I could gather, he had already made his mind up before joining City. After the game in Rome he said to me: ‘You never showed any great desire to sign me permanently.’ I explained that I had to see how the season played out and that he hadn’t played enough games for me to be sure. David offered the £25 million fee for him, but from what I can gather it was as if he were talking to the wall. That led us to think he had already elected to move across town.

    What does mean the section which I underlined?


    Thanks

    not a teacher

    The two biggest football clubs in Manchester are United and City. In 2009 Tévez transferred from Manchester United to Manchester City… he moved across town. The bold quote means: "That brought us to the conclusion that he had already decided to transfer to Manchester City."

    Do you really need clarification of the entire underlined part, or just the bold part?

    It's fine and enough for the bold part.
