The highly-rated Paraguayan joined NEC from his homeland in 2003 and he has impresses hugely over the past 18 months.
Now Feyenoord have lodged a é¼5 million bid for the midfielder - who was wanted by Celtic last year, but NEC want more.
"For é¼5 million I really won't come out of my chair," stated NEC chairman Hans van Delft.
"If the clubs really want him, they will have to pay between é¼7 and é¼10 million."
Feyenoord have moved for Barreto due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the futures of Nicky Hofs and Shinji Ono.
