David Davis said they will not settle the divorce bill until the future treatment of Great Britain is discussed
Mr Davis is determined to break the deadlock when he opens four days of crunch talks with EU negotiator Michel Barnier in Brussels Monday.
A source said: “We don’t have a crystal ball to reveal what sort of deal the EU want on trade and other key issues.

“So it would be madness to hand over a penny without discussing these issues.
“That’s why we’ve got to get these discussions back to our future partnership with the EU once we have left.”
But EU chiefs have told Mr Davis to “dream on”. One said: “We must settle on the money before we discuss anything else.”
