I didn't rate this as likely but I do think it is possible. And I don't think the EU would block it.

Barnier's line has been that the current deal is the only one possible given May's red lines. He has hinted that a different deal would be possible with different red lines.

Several EU honchos have hinted that they would be open to delaying Brexit if there were a chance of making useful progress.
