EU offers Theresa May an alternative to the Chequers plan for Brexit

He said: "If we do negotiate a Canada +++. minus. asterisk. whatever.it's going to take the transition period to negotiate that agreement".

He and Varadkar, he said, had "focused on practical and realistic ways of minimising the damage caused by Brexit, on both sides of the channel".

He will also meet the Chair of the European Parliament's Brexit Steering Group, Guy Verhofstadt.

Asked in an interview whether an agreement could be reached at the next meeting of European leaders in 11 days' time, Mr Juncker said: "We are not that far yet". That would mean having the same external tariff on some goods, as the European Union now has with Turkey, and curb Britain's ability to strike trade deals with other countries.

One senior European Union diplomat said the bloc could seek to attach additional conditions to any such agreement but they have not yet been specified. "And this offer remains in place". The EU is about freedom and human rights, prosperity and peace. He said he hopes the terms will help minimize "losses" from Brexit on both sides.

But officials have been meeting behind the scenes before a key summit in Brussels on October 17 and 18.

The engagements come two weeks ahead of the crunch European Council summit in Brussels and amid ongoing uncertainty over whether a Brexit deal can be struck.

The deputy leader of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, Nigel Dodds, told the BBC his party could not accept a "separate hybrid model" in which Northern Ireland is in the EU single market but out of its customs union.

He said: "If she is rolling back on her pledge that there will be no barriers between Northern Ireland and Great Britain, then the Prime Minister should be under no illusions; we will vote against her deal and it will go nowhere".

The bloc worries that London would use whatever special trade fix is agreed for Northern Ireland as a building block for the overall future trade relationship to win an unfair competitive edge.
