The 32-year-old has signed with PSG until June 2019, following his exit from United Arab Emirates side Al-Jazira in December 2017.
"I am very happy to have signed for my home-town club," Diarra said via the club's official website.
"Paris Saint-Germain represents a lot to me and, with the international dimension the club has taken in recent seasons, it is every player's dream to play here. I am lucky enough to make this dream come true, to know what it feels like to play at the Parc des Princes wearing the Rouge et Bleu.
"I intend to do everything I can, bring all my experience and show all my desire to play, to prove that the club has made the right choice in showing its confidence in me."
Diarra, who is considered a journeyman footballer by some, has only made more than 50 appearances for one club in his entire career – Los Blancos.
The Frenchman represented the Spanish giants on 116 occasions in three years, and also has 34 caps for France to his name.
