The Moroccan international believes that United are not as strong as they once were and that it will take them time to recapture their former glories.
"The fact is Manchester United's cycle of glory is over and Arsenal's has begun. I think they are at a low point and they have lost a lot of the qualities which made them so great," Naybet told The Sun.
"Some United players have moved on, they have signed a lot of youth and they will need three or four years to build a great team again."
The veteran defender is enjoying his time at Spurs having arrived in the summer from Deportivo La Coruna and admitted it was always his dream to play in England.
"I've been dreaming my whole life of playing in England because that was the soccer I grew up watching," added Naybet.
"Nobody had to push me to sign for Spurs. I jumped at the chance and turned down other opportunities which were more financially lucrative.
