Real image can only be formed when the reflected rays converge.
For plane mirrors it is not possible.
However if the reflected rays are converged it can form a real image.
Consider, a source of light at infinity (say sun) and plane mirror is very small in size, its reflected image will show a circular bright spot (image of sun) on the screen.
