No, it looks like they are breaking off, and no special deals should be expected, as the EU is rigid and not really capable of moving. If and when they find opportunities for optimization, they can explore it after the fact.

Normally, two parties assess what they want from each other, and negotiate a deal trade. This is difficult for the EU, but it is much easier to do between two parties.
How can they break off something that hasn't even started and can't start until the UK triggers Article 50?

They have made it clear that the UK can't expect to benefit from freedom without accepting all the others and the financial obligation that comes with it. And quite rightly.
