Modular is definitely the way to go or you’ll have a helluva time getting this into the room.

I would make the front apron of the desk (the piece against the wall) full length. The left apron on the wing piece can be screwed (or thru bolted) to the desk apron.

Since you don’t have much “meat” above the drawers on either front apron, add some 1/2” aluminum angle stock inside the aprons and above the drawers to add support from arms resting on the desk tops.
