The deal believed to be on the table involves keeping the whole United Kingdom in an "arrangement" that effectively preserves the existing EU customs union, ensuring the goods continue to move freely over the Irish land border regardless of the future trade relationship between London and Brussels.
Barnier told small business leaders that the talks were "continuing intensively this week, day and night, with the aim. of having a deal within reach, if we follow through to the end of this negotiations, on October 17".

Barnier also hit out at May's post-Brexit plan to keep the United Kingdom aligned to the EU on goods but not other areas as it would give British business "a major competitive advantage" over its European counterparts.
The warning, amid continued opposition from May's own Conservative MPs to her Brexit strategy, further raised the stakes as negotiators seek a breakthrough ahead of a summit of European Union leaders on October 18. The sides will continue negotiations through the weekend with hopes for a breakthrough as early as Monday.
