German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz plans to take on about 160 billion euros ($190 billion) in new debt in 2021, two people familiar with the matter said on Sunday.
The Finance Ministry was not immediately available for comment.
A government source said last month that the 96 billion euros initially eyed by Scholz for next year would not be enough. ($1 = 0.8437 euros)
