Melbourne - New signing Fabian Delph will play for Manchester City in Friday's pre-season match with Real Madrid in Melbourne while Edin Dzeko may be on his way out, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Thursday.

Delph is expected to get a run along with City's record signing Raheem Sterling against the 10-time European champions in the final game of the International Champions Cup at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

"We are near to the start of the Premier League so I think that the senior players will have more minutes than the last game and I think Delph will be involved," Pellegrini told reporters.

England midfielder Delph left Aston Villa this week to sign a five-year contract with City.

"Edin didn't play the last game as it's not clear if he will continue here or not but he is still working here with the whole squad."

Bosnia's Dzeko played no part when City beat Italy's AS Roma on penalties at the MCG on Tuesday, with Pellegrini confirming that it was a result of the transfer negotiations.
