On 14 July 1983, new Manchester City manager Billy McNeill brought him to Maine Road. Parlane linked up with another newcomer, fellow Scot Jim Tolmie and on their debut for the Blues on Saturday 27 August 1983, City beat Crystal Palace 2–1 at Selhurst Park in the Second Division. Parlane and Tolmie each scored one which set a precedent for the rest of the season. In all, Parlane scored 20 goals in 48 appearances for City, a healthy return.
The 1984–85 season did not start well for Parlane as City signed David Phillips from Coventry City and Tony Cunningham from Newcastle United to bolster their attack. Parlane got injured in September 1984 and was sold to Swansea City in January 1985. After the season finished he played in New Zealand for the summer with North Shore United. He spent the 1985–86 season in Belgium with Racing Jet, before returning to play two seasons with Rochdale from 1986 to 1988, playing 42 games and scoring 10 times.
