I agree with Roger, any decent derailleur will cost more than that bike did new, never mind in it's current condition. Shimano's "Tourney" is their lowest line derailleur and available for under $20 but, again, even that cost is marginal for what you have.

As he recommended, try cleaning up and lubricating what's already there and, at most, fit new cables and housing.
