It appears the Transformers are a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The newly released Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+ mentions the "GoBots" in passing, which existed prior to Transformers but ended up being a part of Hasbro's line of toys.
But, while this clearly implies a connection between the MCU and a particular transforming race of sentient robots, try not to get your hopes too high up.
Keep in mind that Paramount Pictures owns the rights to live-action Transformers films.
Don't forget, Paramount still hasn't given Disney and Marvel Studios the greenlight to work on a Hulk or Namor movie.
It's highly unlikely Paramount and Disney will work together to bring Optimus Prime and co to the MCU.
