Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad has been hit by a few injuries to some key players in recent weeks, but the club are yet to make one signing with one week left in the transfer window.

Berbatov, who made 149 appearances for the Manchester outfit, feels players would not want join the club due to their current struggles in the Premier League.

"United have been sliding for a while and once you get like that it is difficult to stop," the ex-United striker told Betfair. "Yes, they have won some trophies on the way but overall if you look you can clearly see that United are not where everybody wants them and expects them to be.

"It is easy to blame and point the finger but of course, there are a number of factors causing issues and stress in the team. Sometimes when you decline so much you lose games, the pressure builds, and you go on the pitch and you just don't want the ball, and that is the worst thing a player can do.

"I think Ole is still the man to stop the decline, but they need to do business in the transfer market and buy some players now. The question is who do they go out and get and do the players even want to come to Old Trafford.

"The sad part is, United will now have to work hard to convince players to come. In the past, you only had to say the name 'Manchester United' and you were there asking where do you sign.

"If you asked a group of players now, out of Manchester United and other big teams where would they like to go, United would probably be the last place they'd want to go, which is really depressing, and it shows just how much they have declined.

"It is what it is and whoever is in charge of signing players needs to go and speak to people and do their best because if the slide continues then things will only get worse."
