There's growing concerns at AC Milan over Bee Taechaubol's ability to pay for the agreed sale of 48 per cent of the club.
Bee had shaken hands with Milan president Silvio Berlusconi over a €485 million deal.
But Gazzetta dello Sport says the prospect of Bee meeting the latest deadline of September is unlikely.
Milan directors are now becoming increasingly concerned over the delays.
And Rossoneri president Berlusconi has major fears of Bee's consortium coming up short in their previous assurances of meeting the agreed price.
