Bolton's staff have been told not to come to the club's training ground after it was shut because no food is available, Sky Sports News understands.
The club's staff, who are working as normal at the Macron Stadium, and players have yet to be paid their February salaries as the confusion at the Championship club continues.
Last month, it was announced chairman Ken Anderson had reached an agreement in principle to sell his shares in the club.
A takeover by a Cheshire consortium was expected to go through this week but it is believed their interest has cooled over the last few days.
Bolton have been beset by financial difficulties this season, and players went on strike last summer after wages had not been paid.
In October, the club avoided administration after a loan was repaid to BluMarble Capital Ltd, with the payment also meaning they would not receive a point deduction or transfer embargo.
Bolton are due in court next month to face a winding-up petition issued by HM Revenue and Customs, with the hearing scheduled to be held in the High Court on the morning of March 20.
