According to the Daily Express, the EU is considering recommending to British Prime Minister Teresa May: If her Brexit agreement cannot pass the parliament and she wishes to postpone the Brexit date, the UK will have to stay in the EU at least By 2021.
Three EU insiders said that senior EU officials and several EU member states have supported the extension of the original Brexit deadline of March 29 to 21 months to 2021. Officials from both sides now expect that the extension of the Brexit period will avoid a situation of no agreement to leave the EU.
Before, British lawmakers proposed the idea of staying in the EU for another three months. However, EU officials believe that such a short period of time is not enough to achieve fundamental progress and break the deadlock. An EU diplomat said that the extension of 21 months makes sense: Given the situation in the UK, the extension of the time limit is not inevitable.

She stated: Our negotiations with the EU have made good progress and we will continue this work so that we can reach an agreement and leave on March 29.
