Canyon, se da por hecho, será la nueva marca de bicicletas, y montarán Campagnolo. Unzué prefiere no adelantar nada: “Es un hecho que se cambiará de bici, llegado el momento se hará oficial”

Reminds me of how no one in Europe will touch Mancebo even though he's now "clean"

He's 42. He crashes and breaks bones. While I don't know what his salary demands are, if it's $1.5 million, I can see how teams would balk. Teams have already committed their budgets this late in the year, and they have also probably reconciled budget vs UCi points. He may just be pricing himself out of the market.
Who said no one wants to sign him, and why do you assume/imply it is suspicion of doping? Trek said a few weeks ago they were negotiating but they couldn't agree on contract terms.
With the collapse of Euskatel and others, it may simply be a combination of supply, demand and perceived value (given his age). In major league sports, you often find top stars at the tail end of their careers that get released or not signed because they want more money or a longer contract than a team is willing to pay. If Horner is insisting on a long term contract, I can see why teams may balk.
Probably asking too much? Probably already over his best? Too many request for contract? Too many riders available on the market and not many big sponsors involved?
I guess it's a bit of all the factors togheter.

Does anyone need WT points? Don't we have a shortage of WT teams? Bad timing for Horner.

I understand that in some part they wanted to get a bike under him, but he is leaving Movistar who is also not going to be on Pinarello, so why even take the time to paint one up?
The kit can be seen more anyway. Merida or whomever is sponsoring Lampre next season should be designing one right now.
