BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government's takeover of utility Uniper is expected to cost over 30 billion euros ($29.97 billion), Business Insider reported on Tuesday, citing government sources.

The government is close to agreeing a takeover deal, Business Insider said, adding that Berlin, parallel to the acquisition, still planned to impose a gas levy on consumers from Oct. 1.

In response to the report, a source told Reuters that the agreement is in the home stretch.
