Despite the growing list of absentees, Neville has claimed that clubs ask for inflated prices for players at this time of the season.
"I've never seen it work, a player come in January, sign for big money and settle before the start of next season," Neville told BBC Radio Manchester.
"To go into the market in January you never get full value, people think you're desperate so ask for more.
"They've had a lot of injuries, but that's not an excuse because the reason you have a big squad at a big club is you're able to cope with it."
