And that's spurred the TalkTV host into sharing a photo of himself presenting Ronaldo with an Arsenal shirt, as Georgina Rodriguez looks on on Twitter.
Morgan captioned the snap, "It’s time @Cristiano#afc" in the ultimate in cheeky tweets.
United legend is said to have asked the United hierarchy to accept any bids for him.

The bombshell comes after a first week of pre-season training, where new Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag has earned rave reviews.
Ron, who is yet to return to Carrington, is unhappy at the prospect of playing a first season in almost two decades without Champions League football.
And he does not believe United’s squad are capable of mounting a title bid.

Back in April, Morgan told talkSPORT: “Do you know what I’d do if I was Arsenal manager? I’d go in, get Cristiano Ronaldo and put him up front.
“I’ve had this conversation with him last week. I said ‘come to Arsenal’.
In the past, Morgan has begged Ronaldo not to score against his beloved Gunners.
New Blues chief Boehly recently met with Ronaldo's agent - Jorge Mendes - to discuss a host of topics, including a potential move for the sporting icon.
German giants Bayern are also interested in signing the veteran forward, who was a ray of light in an otherwise dismal season for the Red Devils.
Ronaldo was United's top goalscorer, finding the back of the net 24 times and providing three assists in 39 appearances.

Man Utd moved for NONE of Ralf Rangnick’s five suggested transfer targets… two of which went on to sign for City
The German was appointed interim manager last term following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking and identified a handful of players to the board that would improve the club.2Erik ten Hag has made three new signings at Man UtdCredit: Getty 2Ex-interim boss Ralf Rangnick allegedly told the club to go for five playersCredit: AFP
Rangnick took charge in December but his time in the dug-out was miserable as they only won just 11 of his 29 games.
However, he was supposed to take up a consultancy role from the end of last season but he left to take charge of Austria just six days after Erik ten Hag's arrival.
Now Manchester Evening News are claiming that he still left them with a hit-list of five targets to secure this summer - but United failed to capture any of them.
Rangnick allegedly told them to move for Erling Haaland, Christopher Nkunku, Konrad Laimer, Julian Alvarez and Josko Gvardiol.READ MORE MAN UTDRED DEVILS LATEST Arnautovic OFF, Ronaldo to Chelsea BACK ON, Milinkovic-Savic '£57.5m BID'
And he reportedly told them that the latter was a “must buy”.
RB Leipzig and Croatia defender Gvardiol was seemingly his top priority while his team-mate Laimer was another of his recommendations.
He also allegedly told United to scout Leipzig striker Nkunku, who scored 35 goals in 52 appearances last season, but the French star has now penned a new long-term deal with the German outfit.
United knew that their hopes of signing hotshot Haaland were slim, and he is now starring for rivals City, but he still urged them to try and strike a deal with his £51m release clause becoming active over the summer.Most read in Sport'YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED' Tributes paid to 'Godfather' of MMA Gene Lebel, who dies at 89'BE A BEAST' Serena reveals Tiger Woods' advice after she spoke to golf hero before returnFINDING LOVE Find out about Lance Armstrong's wife Anna Hansen ArmstrongOH BOY!

Rangnick also reportedly brought Alvarez to United's attention in January.
But they were pipped by City again, who swooped for the Argentinian from River Plate for £14m back in January.
Rangnick and Ten Hag are not believed to have met in person but allegedly held talks before the former’s departure.
Despite his recommendations, United moved for none of these targets over the summer window.
Instead they signed full-back Tyrell Malacia, free agent Christian Eriksen and centre-back Lisandro Martinez.
Meanwhile, Adrien Rabiot is expected to become Ten Hag's fourth addition of the transfer window.
