LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - There is the good shape of a Brexit deal but it is not necessarily “in the bag”, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday following a meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Luxembourg.

“Yes there is a good chance of a deal, yes I can see the shape of it, everybody can see roughly what could be done,” Johnson told reporters.

“This is a difficult moment, clearly we are very, very keen to do it but I don’t want people to think that it is necessarily in the bag. It isn’t necessarily in the bag, there will be hard work to be done.”
