LONDON (Reuters) – Media reports suggesting that Britain could seal a divorce deal with the European Union in the next few days should be taken “with a very large pinch of salt”, a senior UK government source told the Press Association on Thursday.

Both sides have indicated that they are nearing a deal in recent days but a government source told Reuters earlier on Thursday that Prime Minister Theresa May would probably not gather her cabinet until next week to discuss the details.
