Van der Wiel joined the big-spending French side on Monday from Ajax and believes that the club will be able to become another star-studded side like Real Madrid's 'Galacticos'.
"Paris Saint-Germain can become as big a club as Real Madrid. They want to make it to the absolute top, win the Ligue 1 title and compete for top honours in Europe," Van der Wiel stated to Algemeen Dagblad.
"I am very pleased to be part of this project. They are very ambitious and want to win trophies. I was looking for a new challenge and we can achieve something unique here.
"And it's obviously fantastic to play alongside a star like Zlatan Ibrahimovic."
Van der Wiel was also linked with a move to Newcastle United this summer, but the right back has stressed that a move to the Premier League side was never an option.
"I really wanted to play for a club in a big city. I don't know how serious they were, but I don't see myself living in the middle of nowhere in Newcastle.
"I am used to Amsterdam and really enjoy living in a big city. I have been in Paris for only three days or so, but I can already say that it's quit similar to Amsterdam."
