    BERLIN, Nov 22 (Reuters) - 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) (Reporting by Holger Hansen; Writing by Christoph Steitz; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
