Moyes previously said it would take £100m to get Rice but now he believes 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?”

Rice wants stay near his family in south west London. Yet there are concerns the lack of investment by the club in January could convince him his future is elsewhere.

Moyes was frustrated after several deadline day moves broke down.

He added: “Would we have liked to have added to the squad? Yes. We’ve tried to be ambitious with what we’re doing. I want to take the club forward.

“I didn’t just want backup, I wanted real competition.

“I didn’t feel as if it was that sort of transfer window for me, as it wasn’t for lots of other teams.

“I wanted people who were actually going to take other people’s jerseys and challenge them.”
