Moyes knows ‘humongous money’ for Rice transfer
David Moyes says the Premier League big boys missed the chance to sign Declan Rice on the ‘cheap’ — for £100million.
And the West Ham boss has warned them it will take a ‘humongous’ offer to prize him away this summer.
Rice, 23, is on the radar of the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea after cementing himself as an elite talent for club and country.
The midfielder’s contract expires in 2024.
Moyes previously said it would take £100m to get Rice but now he talks that price tag will be even greater.
Ahead of today’s FA Cup trip to non-league Kidderminster, Moyes said: “You will need humongous money to get close.
“I said in the summer that I thought Declan Rice was £100m. That was your chance to get him cheap. You can make your mind up over what I’m talking about now.
“I feel his commitment. He’s under contract and we’re really pleased to have him. He’s here for certainly a few years.
“He’s like a special edition Declan Rice, there’s not many like him.
“He’s arguably playing as well as any midfielder in European football, and the prices were expensive in January weren’t they?”
