I don’t think there will be any issues with movement as long as the top is attached to your base in some way that allows for expansion/contraction. I think within the top itself that while the total expansion at the wider side will be more than at the other side, the difference will be linear throughout the width so the glue joints should withstand it without complaint.

As far as the glue up goes, I think I would use some dowels to maintain alignment during the glue up. I’d leave it oversized until after glue up then cut to final shape.
