Henríquez began his football career with Universidad de Chile in 2007 at the age of 13, taking up the sport after he had stopped playing tennis, the sport that he played until the age of 12. In 2009, Henríquez went on trial with Manchester United, who purchased the rights to sign Henríquez for €4 million at any point until 2014.
Universidad de Chile

He failed to play in all the second semester, but was part of team directed by Jorge Sampaoli that was champion of Clausura Tournament and the Copa Sudamericana.
After the departure of Gustavo Canales to Chinese Super League club Dalian Aerbin, the club desperately tried to sign a striker, nonetheless, Jorge Sampaolí trusted the talented Henríquez to replace Canales in the starting line-up for the 2012 season, despite the interest of other clubs that wanted him on loan. On 22 February, he scored on his international debut in the Copa Libertadores in a 5–1 win over Godoy Cruz of Mendoza, in where Henríquez scored the last goal of the victory in the 90th minute. On 28 February, he incremented his goal tally scoring twice in a 4–1 win over Cobreloa, being this his first goals for tournaments of the Chilean Primera División.
On 21 August 2012, Manchester United announced that Henríquez had been granted a governing body endorsement which would allow him to register and play for the club. His signing was confirmed on 5 September, and he was given the squad number 21. Henríquez made his debut for United as he featured for the under-21 side and scored the final goal in a 4–2 win over Newcastle United.
Wigan Athletic loan
On 2 January 2013, Henríquez joined Wigan Athletic on loan until the end of the 2012–13 season. It was confirmed he could wear the number 11 shirt. He made his debut in English football as a half-time substitute for Daniel Redmond in an FA Cup third-round game against Bournemouth on 5 January, a 1–1 draw at the DW Stadium. His Premier League debut came two weeks later as a 71st-minute substitute for Emmerson Boyce against Sunderland, and eight minutes later he headed in Shaun Maloney's cross for Wigan's second goal in a 3–2 home loss. He won his first major trophy on 11 May 2013, as an unused substitute in the 1–0 FA Cup Final win against favourites Manchester City.
Real Zaragoza loan
Henríquez returned to Manchester United ahead of the 2013–14 season and scored the equaliser in a 1–1 draw with Swedish club AIK in the final match of the club's pre-season tour on 6 August 2013. On 28 August, he joined Real Zaragoza on a season-long loan. He made his Segunda División debut three days later, as a 54th-minute substitute for Víctor Rodríguez in a 1–0 defeat away to FC Barcelona B. On 21 September he scored his first goal, opening a 2–1 win at Real Madrid Castilla after five minutes. He scored six times in 25 matches, 20 as a starter, including a first-half brace in a 4–2 win at RCD Mallorca on 6 October.
On 11 August 2014, Henríquez signed a loan contract with Croatian football club Dinamo Zagreb. Upon arrival he was given the shirt number 9, and made his debut for the club four days after signing in the league match against RNK Split, replacing Duje Čop for the last 17 minutes of a 1–0 win at Stadion Maksimir. He scored his first goal for Dinamo in the Eternal derby away to Hajduk Split on 31 August, coming off the bench for Ognjen Vukojević in the 59th minute and confirming a 3–2 win in added time. He then scored league hat-tricks against NK Lokomotiva, RNK Split and Hajduk Split, ending with 29 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions.
On 6 July 2015, Henríquez joined Dinamo Zagreb on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee. He scored for the club 22 days later in the third qualifying round of the season's Champions League, heading the equaliser in a 1–1 home draw with Molde FK.
Henríquez has consistently participated in the youth national football teams in Chile, the 2009 South American Under-15 in Bolivia, where he scored two goals against Paraguay, and the 2011 South American Under-17 in Ecuador, where he scored against Colombia, Brazil and Venezuela.
Henríquez made his debut for the Chile senior team on 14 November 2012, coming on as a 20th-minute substitute for the injured Alexis Sánchez and scoring Chile's only goal with two minutes remaining with a header from Matías Fernández's cross in a 3–1 friendly defeat by Serbia at the AFG Arena in Switzerland. In his next game on 14 August 2013, he concluded a 6–0 friendly win over Iraq at the Brøndby Stadium.
