She eventually agreed to join the latter club.[1] In her only one season at the club, she played in all of the club's league matches and scored 16 goals.

In her first season with Montpellier, she scored a team-leading 19 goals and helped the club win the 2008–09 Challenge de France. Delie remained potent on the field of play in the 2009–10 season as Montpellier were not only playing in domestic competitions, but also in the 2009–10 edition of the UEFA Women's Champions League. She finished as the second-best scorer in the league behind Eugénie Le Sommer after netting 18 in 20 league matches.
