Bee Taechaubol’s deal to take over 48 per cent of Milan should be completed after Christmas, according to reports.
The property tycoon, commonly known as Mr Bee, has agreed to buy a €500m stake in the Rossoneri, but the deal has faced a number of delays.
According to MilanNews and ANSA, President Silvio Berlusconi has spoken to Mr Bee over the phone, and agreed to try and complete the deal as soon as possible after the Christmas period.
Despite this, the constant delays to the deal have led to some speculation over whether the Thai will invest at all.
An investigation into the sale is currently being taken by the Milan city council, which may shed some light on these issues.
