Sociedad boss Raynald Denoueix is well-aware of Potillon's ability after his time spent in Le Championnat as boss of Nantes.
Denoueix moved for the 29-year-old in a bid to bolster his defensive options ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.
Real have a busy schedule ahead of them this term after qualifying for the Champions League on the back of their second-place finish last season, and were keen to add further strength in depth to their squad.
Potillon, a former St Etienne and Toulouse full back, has been a consistent performer at Le Parc des Princes, but conceded he was ready to move on after falling out-of-favour with new PSG boss Vahid Halilhodzic.
"I felt really well at Paris, and then things have deteriorated a little. I understood the coach finally didn't want me anymore," he commented.
"So as I still was in contact with Raynald DenoueixÇª I am really excited to discover this new league. I will also play Champions League, which is very nice."
